Take on Viktor “Isildur1” Blom Heads-Up in the Full Tilt Poker Blom 100! 0001

The man, the mystery, the legend... Viktor "Isildur1" Blom! He's captivated the poker world since splashing onto the scene in the nosebleed games on Full Tilt Poker back in late 2009. Now Full Tilt Poker is offering 100 poker players around the world a free chance to go heads-up against the man himself for a share of $100,000 in the Blom 100.

For this promotion, Blom — one of Full Tilt Poker's "Professionals" — will be bringing his own money to the table to take on 10 players per day for 10 days, with each of his opponents having a chance to win $1,000!

From Oct. 26 to Nov. 4, players will have four different paths to qualify for freeroll tickets to compete in 1 of 10 daily Blom 100 Round 1 or Round 2 Flip Freeroll competitions. The Round 1 flip freeroll tournaments run every five minutes starting at 14:00 ET. The Round 2 flip freerolls start shortly afterwards running every five minutes starting at 14:30 ET.

Less than an hour later, the 10 winners of each freeroll will go on to play separate heads-up matches against Blom for their chance at $1,000! The heads-up tournaments will have starting stacks of 1,500 chips in a traditional turbo heads-up No Limit Hold’em format.

Players that lose this heads-up match will have a second chance to win some money in the Blom 100 $5K Freeroll on Sunday, Nov. 10 at 14:00 ET.

It is very simple to qualify into a Blom 100 Flip Freeroll tournament with the possibility to qualify for up to four freeroll competitions a day. Players can earn a freeroll ticket by either depositing at least $20; winning a sit-and-go with at least six players; cashing in a multi-table tournament; or winning one of the 50 available tickets in Full Tilt Poker’s Twitter competition. To win a ticket via Twitter it is recommended to follow @FullTiltPoker or search for #Blom100.

“I’m putting up my own money for this because I like to challenge myself," said Blom about the competition. "It will be fun to see how many matches I win in the end. I want to win them all — that would be sick!”
