 Viktor Already in possession of three SCOOP titles, Swedish player Viktor "Isildur1" Blom has now claimed his first ever WCOOP title after winning the WCOOP 58-H $2,100 HORSE event.

Ninety-three players set out to win the event, won last year by Daniel Negreanu at the expense of Isildur1 in a heads-up, but there was no getting the better of him this time around. In fact, he even found time to cash in WCOOP 61-H $2,100 NLHE for his 14th place finish at the same time.
