Viktor “Isildur1” Blom and PokerStars have parted company. Blom is no longer listed as a PokerStars Team Pro and Eric Hollreiser, PokerStars’ Head of Corporate Communications, has reportedly confirmed that their contract has not been renewed by “mutual agreement.”
The news comes only three months after Blom astonished his fans by winning $407k in back-to-back tournament wins in the PokerStars SCOOP tournament series.
Blom has played in the ten largest pots in online poker history: all of them on Full Tilt Poker.Speculation is now rife that he wants to be free to play in the big games on Full Tilt when it is re-launched under new owners PokerStars.
Certainly Blom is one of the biggest attractions for online railbirds. His radical swings at high stakes No Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha frequently lead to rumors that he has gone bust. The 21 year-old keeps defying doubters by coming back again and again playing high stakes against anyone prepared to play him.
As one of the most marketable of all online poker players, Victor Blom will have no shortage of sponsorship offers should he make himself available.
