On Wednesday, May 27, one of online poker's most renowned players will take to the game's hottest video platform. The usually media-shy Viktor “Isildur1” Blom will take to Twitch for the very first time next week to stream a 10-hour session on Unibet Poker that will include a mix of stakes from $50-$400 no-limit hold'em and pot-limit Omaha.
Blom, who is used to playing the highest stakes available online, will move tables every hour or so, giving as many players as possible the chance to play against him at their usual stakes. Players will also have the chance to ask Blom questions throughout the day, and to take part in a number of competitions Unibet will run on the stream.
Blom will also have his own limited edition avatar, which players will have the chance to win and attach to their own Unibet Poker account. Check it out:
While not officially sponsored by Unibet, Blom and the online site have enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship since November 2014, when rumors of a new sponsorship first surfaced. It was then that Blom appeared at Unibet’s Golden Cash Game, and then earlier this month the Swede was spotted sporting a Unibet patch at the European Poker Tour Grand Final.
The action will all be streamed live at www.twitch.tv/unibetpoker on Wednesday, May 27th between 11:00 and 23:00 BST, so be sure to tune in then.
