It turns out that Isildur1’s identity was not as mysterious as it was once considered. Rumors had pinned Isildur1 as Viktor Blom, and the rumors turned out to be true.

The story of Isildur1 began in September of 2009, though he had been relatively unknown until November. Isildur1 began taking on many poker professionals, including Tom Dwan, Phil Ivey, Brian Townsend, Patrik Antonius and others. His stakes had reached the nosebleeds – $500/$1,000 blinds. He had managed to rake in $5 million in winnings, though fell significantly.

Isildur1’s bankroll fluctuated heavily, going from high to low rapidly. Isildur had at one point dropped to approximately $2,000, though he managed to rebuild it past the $1,000,000 mark.

Due to the amount of money Isildur1 had been playing with online, many began to follow his achievements. Isildur1 was impossible to identify though rumors pinned him as Viktor Blom. It was announced on January 8th, 2011, at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, that Isildur1 was in fact Viktor Blom.

Blom has, since December 2010, joined up with PokerStars as a Team PokerStars Pro. He will have to wait until he is 21 to participate in the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, however.
