HNR 3/4: PokerStars’ Big Sunday; Isildur1’s Downswing

Dustin Gouker : March 4th, 2013


PokerStars deals a big hand and hosts a big Sunday Million, and Viktor Blom isn’t doing well of late. It’s all in the Monday edition of the PTP Hit and Run.

PokerStars’ big Sunday: Weekends don’t get much bigger than this at the world’s largest online poker site. First, the 95 billionth hand in site history was dealt, and that hand’s winner took home 150,000 big blinds as a bonus, or about $23K.

Also, the $7 million 7th anniversary of the Sunday Million took place, and the top three players all won at least $800,000. More on the tournament here.

Blom’s downswing: Viktor “Isildur1″ Blom is dropping down in levels? Say it ain’t so. After dropping about $4 million at Full Tilt Poker, it appears Blom is licking his wounds.
