The high stakes and heads up action may be gone from Full Tilt, but that hasn't stopped Viktor 'Isildur1' Blom from booking some solid online poker wins.

Sweden's wonder boy won more than $1 million on PokerStars Tuesday night, crushing Sean 'WithColor' Rafael at the Pot Limit Omaha tables, PokerStrategy reported. Blom's $1,088,684 take came after a seven ­hour session with Rafael and featured a scooped pot totaling more than $270,000.

Rafael thought his bottom two pair might be good, but a flopped set for Blom said otherwise. 'WithColor' may be missing the color green from his bank account after his match with 'Isildur1,' but his long term results remain a mystery due to opting out of being tracked.

Blom's run good continued Wednesday when he added another six­ figure win to his bankroll. His profits at PokerStars in 2015 amount to $2,959,608.

Over at Full Tilt, 'Isuldur1' is down $1,367,244 this year. He will likely remain in the red at FTP, as Full Tilt got out of the high stakes game recently, making some massive changes designed to attract recreational players. But one could certainly argue that winning and losing millions is merely a recreation for players like Blom.
