Viktor “Isildur1” Blom has skipped the 2014 World Series of Poker so far but the move has proven profitable as he’s currently online poker’s biggest winner in June.
WSOP officials, meanwhile, released the schedule for the 2014-2015 WSOP Circuit.
Isildur1 Continues Winning – Up $577,422 in June
Viktor “Isildur1” Blom has apparently decided to skip the majority of the 2014 World Series of Poker. Instead, he has decided to focus his attention to rebuilding his online bankroll.
Isildur1 is currently online poker’s biggest winner for the month of June, up $577,472. His total is more than double that of his next closest competitor “punting-peddler.”
With the majority of high-stakes cash pros currently in Las Vegas for the WSOP action has slowed considerably online.
Prior to the start of the series, the average daily “winner” finished up $125,000 or more. At present, the daily winner is averaging right at $50,000.
Despite his winning month Blom is still down $1.26 million on the year. He started the year on a heater, peaking at $2.1 million in earnings.
Since that time, he has been on a steady spiral and has not been in the black since early April.
