The man who is responsible for the 10 largest pots in online poker history, Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, scooped his largest pot even on his new site PokerStars (where he is a member of Team PokerStars Pro). While it’s not in the ballpark of the seven-figure pots Isildur1 was known for at Full Tilt Poker, the win on PokerStars, a $335k pot against the anonymous “1Il|1Il|1il|”, was his largest to date at the site.

The hand took place at a $100/$200 PLO game where Isildur1 was seated along with high-stakes regulars “1Il|1Il|1il|” and “patpatman” when the following hand occurred:

Pre-Flop: patpatman opened to $600 from 1st position; Isildur1 3-bet to $2,260 on the button; 1Il|1Il|1il| made the call from the Small Blind; patpatman 4-bet to $10k; Isildur1 made the call; 1Il|1Il|1il| decided to 5-Bet; patpatman called; Isildur1 called.

Flop: Ts-4s-3d: 1Il|1Il|1il| bet $114,235 (leaving himself only $4,125 left in his stack); patpatman folded, and Isildur1 put 1Il|1Il|1il| all-in with a raise. 1Il|1Il|1il| tabled Ad-Ac-5c-6s for a pair of Aces and an open-ended straight-draw: Isildur1 tabled As-Qs-Qh-Td for a pair of Queens and the nut-flush-draw.

The Turn was the Jack of Spades, locking up the hand for Isildur1. The inconsequential River card was the 8 of Spades.

Despite the massive pot, Isildur1 is currently down over $330k for the year thus far at the online poker tables, but he did win over $1 million at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) after winning the $100k Super-High-Roller tournament.
