Viktor “Isildur1” Blom has been playing a lot under 2015.
We started this blog in August this year and ever since it’s been a great success, and when we started to publish posts in English, it became even bigger.

This is something we of course are very happy for, and we hope 2016 is going to be just as entertaining as 2015. We have some very interesting things to publish in the beginning of 2016, including things like articles, interviews and a lot more to give out to all of you happy railers out there.

It’s been a year with a lot of swings up and down for Viktor, and the first half year of 2016 didn’t look that good. However, he managed to get back fighting and ended his year at PokerStars with a staggering (insert sum here) profit, making him the biggest winner on PokerStars for 2015, something that we hope he is really proud of.  With the start of this blog came also the success, the fun thing is that we started publishing posts on the blog at almost the exakt same time as Isildur1 started his massive upswing in August this year, we can atleast pretend that we helped him to his success in some way, even though we understand that’s not really how it works, but we think motivation is very important and maybe he has become more motivated, consciously or unconsciously.

When Unibet announced that they were going to have a stream together with no other than Isildur1, we were so happy for the wonderful news. We also understood pretty quickly that considering it was a cooperation with Unibet, we wouldn’t see any highstakes action on the PokerStars tables, but watching him playing on Unibet’s client was good enough. The massive thing would of course have been to watch him play highstakes, but we think that without Unibet a stream wouldn’t have happened, so we thank Unibet very much for doing that with Viktor Blom, it fills our hearts with joy and happiness.

There has been a lot of good action in 2015, and to be completely honest, we are worried about 2016. Frankly, the future doesn’t look very bright in terms of Online Poker. Sure, it’s been fun railing Isildur1 at MicroGaming, but is that really a step in the right direction? Moving the action from PokerStars to MicroGaming? Honestly, it’s not. It’s like when you were little and you were invited to a birthday party. You have such high hopes, and when you get there, you see the big candy dish. But when you began to approach it, you also saw the horror. It wasn’t the real deal, it was some copycat candy that tasted like crap. It’s like asking for Coca Cola in a restaurant and they give you Pepsi, it’s just not right, and we get the same feeling when we rail Isildur1 on MicroGaming. Sure, it’s Viktor, but it’s not Isildur1.

Amaya Group is doing the best they can to destroy what’s currently left of the Poker network called PokerStars, and this doesn’t look good. It wasn’t long ago that one of the best No-Limit Holdem players Alex “Kanu” Millar left Team Pokerstars in protest against it, and other PokerStars members followed in his path.

Another Highstakes Pro that just recently left Team PokerStars, is no other than Ike, and now you might think, Ike? As in Ike Hackerton? Haxton? Yep, you guessed it right, Ike Haxton. Think about it. Ike Haxton leaves Team PokerStars. With the exception of Isildur1, Ike Haxton is a big part of Online Poker, and Online Poker has played a huge part in Ike Haxton’s carrer. Ike is of course one of the best Poker players in the world, so there is no doubt that he can be very succesful in Live Games as well, but we dare to guess that he loves Online Poker a lot more than Live Poker,  and sure, he could crush anyone even if it’s Live Poker, even without his GTO-Dream-Machine, but this should be a clear sign to the Amaya Group, that something is not right here.

Ike even had to travel to Manilla in the Phillippines just in the beginning of 2016 to try and win the HongKong millions, and we wish you all the best of luck with that Ike.

Something is definetly wrong. We are doing something wrong here, and we need to change. One can at least hope that this is what they are thinking right now, but it’s more likely that they are thinking about how they can destroy the Poker and bring in more Casino.

The Amaya Group reminds us of The Three Feathers Casino, featured in South Park. That episode is also called Red Mans Greed, a name that surely is very fitting to the Amaya Group. We have talked about this issue earlier in the blog, but it’s so big and so bad for the Poker community that it deserves to be mentioned again.

The Amaya Group has to stop destroying what’s left of Highstakes Poker. We know all you care about is the $$$,  but for once in your lives, show some heart and love for the people who made this community what it is today, and especially to the Highstakes players that made the Highstakes Poker Action what it is today, or saying today is just wrong, what it was 2015 fits better here. Because 2016 looks dark, it looks bad. The big question is, how much of action from Viktor are we really going to see in 2016 on PokerStars? Surely he will be seen on the tables every now and then, but continously like he did in 2015?

Don’t think so. Sadly, we are worried that there will be close to no action at all on PokerStars in 2016, and don’t get us wrong here. We dont really have much love for PokerStars, but considering they already completely destroyed FullTiltPoker, PokerStars is the only hope left out there, and sadly it’s the same company owning PokerStars and FullTiltPoker, and they have already managed to destroy FullTiltPoker, it’s just a matter of time before they succeed with doing the same thing for PokerStars.

We remember all the negative things that was being said about Isildur1. Words like “With this kind of playing style he cant make it in the long run. He is too much of a degen. He needs to have more bankroll management. He is not good enough”. All of those words can today be flushed down the toilet. Isildur1 is the most feared Poker player out there today, in the entire world, and with the amazing upswing he had at PokerStars in 2015, the haters will probably have a difficult time in 2016.

Viktor probably plays more sessions than he forgets, but he doesn’t go around fire expecting not to sweat, and the others Highstakes players knows he lays them down making their beds, rascalls trying to beat him when he’s on a downswing, he will break your leg. Be good or be good at it, fucking right, Isildur got his gun, semi-Cartermatic. Ok, you want him up in the cage, then he will come out in Beast Mode, Viktor got this world stuck in the safe, combination is the Isildur1-code. So you can keep knocking, but wont knock him down. No love lost, no love found.

Even though Isildur1 had one of the best times in his Poker career in August this year, with the upswings that followed, there has been a lot of negative things as well. There has been a lot of negative energy out there. One of them being Brian Hastings. I think most people out there thought that Brian would have learned from his earlier mistakes, that he would have grown up, but no, what we had seen from him earlier was only the beginning. Not only was he playing under the nickname BigNittyBanker on FullTiltPoker, where he just appeared out of nowhere to the Highstakes tables, targeting one player, and if this wasn’t enough, he did the same thing on PokerStars under the nickname NoelHayes, and think about it. These are just the 2 nicknames that have been leaked out the public, who knows how many nicknames he has played under recently?

As if this wasn’t enough, guess who his main target was. Just have a guess, give it a shot. Yes, Viktor “Isildur1” Blom. We do recieve some negative comments now and then for showing so much love and dedication for Isildur1, but I think we can all agree on the fact that Brian Hastings must be the biggest fan Isildur1 has, in the entire world. Sure, he isn’t good enough to beat Viktor in a fair game, so he takes a happy shortcut here and there, but that’s alright isn’t it? No, it isn’t fucking alright, and it’s a disgrace. Let’s not talk more about Brian Hastings, it’s like not saying Voldemort’s name, he simply shouldn’t be named ever again. What he has done is inexcusable, and even if you do not want to mention his name, you still have to remind the Poker World what Brian Hastings is all about.

Brian, it’s a little too late to say your just sorry now, you kicked him when he was down, fuck what you say, just don’t hurt Viktor. Haven’t you done enough? You showed him nothing but hate, you ran him into the ground, but what comes around goes around, it’s called karma, and you should probably look it up, because your karma bank cant be that filled up, considering the actions you have taken earlier in your life. Let’s just hope you have atleast tried to become a better person for 2016, one can only hope.

Viktor “Isildur1” Blom is alive again, more alive than he has ever been in his entire life before, and we can see people’s ears perk up as he crushes at the tables.

Just as the unwanted pregnancy, there are unwanted people in your life you should strive to abort, and such abortion is not sin, nor harm, but the eradication of a destructive foetus. Therefore we kindly ask you, Brian Hastings, never to come back to Online Poker.

But not everything is negative, not all Poker Players are bad people. Take Dan “Jungleman” Cates for example. He is on our blacklist, and even though he is on the same blacklist as Brian Hastings, he is there for whole other reasons than Brian is.

It is actually somewhat unclear if Jungleman actually are behaving in such bad manners because he is serious, or if he is simply trolling. We can not interpret it in many other ways, and take for instance when Dan told Isildur1 that he was going to report him to PokerStars for not playing his blind, was he actually being serious, or was he joking with Viktor, and it leads us to the final question:

Does Viktor himself know if Dan is serious or not? And the question upon that that one can ask, does Isildur1 really care about what Jungleman has to say? We have no idea, but we can only assume that he doesn’t give a damn about what Dan says about him. If you want to be respected you should show respect to others, if you want to be loved, you should show love for others, if you want to be understood, you have to understand others, and there can probably also difficulties arise.

Dan Cates himself has probably never visited our blog, but we do have a pretty decent amount of visitors daily, so if anyone out there knows Dan and want to forward this question to him, we would gladly appreciate it.

Dan, are you actually serious when you are saying stuff like this, or are you trolling? Maybe you are trolling without even knowing it yourself? What do you really think about Viktor Blom, why do you show him so much hate? What has he ever done to you? Based on the information available, Viktor has always shown great respect for you. Please get back to us and tell us, We eagerly await your response, a response that probably is never go to reach us, but one can always hope.

Now back to the positive, now back to the good people.

The first thing that pops up when you mention good people, is of course King Blom himself, but also another person who we have mentioned here in the blog before, a man who has meant a lot to us in 2015. Joey Ingram. We know you wasn’t requested to do it, but when we saw the livestream you started when Isildur1 were playing against WithColor,  we were so happy. With “we” i mean a lot of people, not only us here on Isildur1.se, we probably speak for a big part of the Poker Community when we say the following:

Thank you Joey for what you have contributed with to Poker in 2015, thank you for your dedication to Poker, thank you for giving free PLO lessions in your livestreams, thank you for sharing your knowledge. Some haters out there is probably thinking right now “Joe Ingram?

He doesn’t even play at the highest levels in PLO today, why are you even mentioning him?” Well, the answer to that is quite simple, Joey has the best Poker Livestream in the world, and sure, Joey maybe doesn’t play the highest stakes in PLO, but that has nothing to do with his skill level, that has nothing to do with his knowledge. He has extreme skills in PLO, Joey doesn’t do the highest stakes of PLO, but if he did, he would probably be the best PLO player in the world, after Isildur1 of course. Well, okay, Maybe Ben Tollerene would have still been up there, but we think that you get the point we are trying to make here. Joey Ingram is actually one of the best PLO players in the world. Joey aint no boy scout, Joey is not a fish, he is one of the biggest sharks out there. He is extremely GTO. He covered almost the entire battle between Isildur1 and Walter WhiteColor, and for that he deserves to be praised to the sky.

We don’t know what’s waiting for us all in terms of action from Isildur1 in 2016, but we sincerely hope that there will be a lot of it, and that Viktor will be successful in his battles at the tables. A good start to 2016 is the start Viktor needs. It would of course also be very nice to see him playing some live tournaments to start the year of with, but considering there hasn’t been a lot of live tournaments for Viktor in most recent years, maybe that’s too much to hope for. We wish him the best of luck and success with whatever he decides to do in 2016, but we really hope and think that Poker is going to be a big part of his daily life also in 2016.

It also surprises us that there seems to be many people out there interested in Poker who never even railed Isildur1 playing. It amazes us on extreme levels. How can you not rail Isildur1? But at the same time, one can ask the following question:

If after all these years, you still do not understand Viktor’s greatness, and why so many people out there keep him as their favorite Poker player in the world, you might not deserve to witness it. You might not deserve the honor of witnessing the most interesting Poker player in the world.

 We have just recently published a huge article where we go in depth regarding his opponents, an article that than came to be the article with the most page views on our blog ever, but as many of you railers out there already knows, we like to publish longer, more detail filled blog posts here on Isildur1.se, and this is something we are going to continue to do in 2016, no matter what. Luckily, many of our readers here on the blog enjoys the long texts and thinks it’s interesting, and one of those people is a very good Highstakes player that we are going to publish an interview with early in 2016. An interview that we think you guys really will enjoy reading. If you for some reason have missed out on that post, we strongly advice you to click the link below, to catch up on all the good things you missed out on:

Now we are looking forward to what’s waiting in 2016. Hopefully he will attend some live-tournaments as well and crush the livetables, but as we all know it’s the online highstakes tables where he feels most at home, and also where he has hade his biggest success. It’s also important that we dont forget that he has won a massive live-tournament as well, in the PCA Carribean for over 1M$, he is a WorldClass Highstakes Online Player, the best in the world, but he is also a WorldClass live player, he is extremely dangerous and feared by most players.



We will of course keep all of you updated with what is waiting around the corner, and we hope that the PLO action continues today, considering the good form that Viktor ”Isildur1” Blom seems to be in at this very moment. Oooh, if you have never railed Isildur1, go there while it is still wild. My favorite uncle asked me if I wanted to go there, Uncle Camlin. He said if you don’t rail, you’re going to jail. That is how Uncle Camlin ask’s you.

From all of us here I’d like to wish you happy railing, Merry Christmas, and God bless my friend
