Another $1 million win for Viktor “Isildur1” Blom.
The online poker phenom has just won the popular SCOOP Main Event and the $1 million cash prize that comes with that honor.
Blom has been winning big in recent weeks at the high stakes tables on Full Tilt Poker, now owned by PokerStars.
Gus Hansen is nearing the $10 million mark in poker, but unfortunately he’s in negative territory.
Data goes back to 2007. Full Tilt Poker was shut down for nearly 9 months this past year.
A woman cited for running high stakes poker games for celebrities, athletes and Wall Street bigwigs has pleaded Not Guilty.
Bloom and 33 others were indicted this past week in connection with their affiliation to a multi-million dollar international gambling ring alleged to have ties to the Russian Mafia. She was arraigned in a Manhattan federal court on Friday.
