Eighteen Heads-up Matches Against Viktor "Isilidur1" Blom
It can't be easy beating Viktor "Isildur1" Blom heads-up. On Sunday, 18 players were put to the test facing the Full Tilt Professional heads-up for a chance at $5,000.
These 18 players weren't randomly selected, as they all won this unique opportunity in Full Tilt's Sit & Go Trio promotion.
Blom proved why he is one of the most feared opponents in the game by beating 12 of his opponents. Congrats to the six players that were able to get the best of Blom in their matches.

5 Ways You Know That You’re a Poker Player
Most of the time, partypoker Team Pro Kara Scott is either playing poker or involved in the game in a different capacity. Spending so much time around poker, she is more than qualified to talk about a humorous topic in the partypoker blog titled, 5 Ways You Know That You’re a Poker Player.
My personal favorite is Scott's point about poker scenes in movies are terrible. They aren't all terrible, but poker players are the first to complain during entire poker scenes when they do not live up to reality. This is true even when non-poker playing family and friends are around and just want to enjoy the movie complaint free.
