Isildur1 Viktor Blom has won a staggering $211,000 in just one session on PokerStars.
The 21-year-old, who won, lost and won back millions playing online last year, played 6,291 hands without a break on Wednesday night.
The session, described by some observers as 'sick', saw the Swede playing both No Limit Hold'em and Pot Limit Omaha simultaneously.
And, in typical Blom style, his winnings go some way to repairing the huge $279,000 loss he suffered on Monday night to Sander “Berndsen12” Berndsen.
Isildur describes such swings as 'just variance', but he would have been thrilled to take $183,000 back off the Dutch pro on just one table.
The marathon session also saw him take on Jeans89, 1-ronnyr3, LuckyGump and Ville Wahlbeck and Ilari Shamies.
Isildur took a fair wedge off the latter after a series of $100/$200 PLO matches - but is still $50,000 down for 2012 so far.
The same can't be said of Finnish pro Ville Wahlbeck, who can boast $500,000 in online winnings to his name just six weeks into the year.
