After PokerStars revealed isildur1’s identity at the PCA tournament last night, the young Swedish Pro now confirmed as Viktor Blom took on Bertrand “ElkY” Grosspelier and an online qualifier in two short heads-up battles before he answered five questions from the assembled media.

Here are Viktor “isildur1” Blom’s answers from the press conference:

Q: Is it a relief to finally reveal your identity?
A: I think a lot of people have known for a long time who I really am, so it doesn’t make a big difference to me. But when I signed for PokerStars I felt like it was the right time to reveal my identity.

Q: What unique qualities will you bring to Team PokerStars Pro?
A: I think I am the best online heads-up no-limit hold’em player in the world but I’m looking forward to learning a lot from the other Team Pros and helping them with their games too.

Q: How will this unveiling affect your future action?
A: I will now be playing lots of EPT events and I really want to focus and win one in 2011. I also think I’ll have some great SuperStar Showdown matches at PokerStars.com now that people know who I really am.

Q: Who do you respect the most on Team PS Pro?
A: Daniel Negreanu and Johnny Lodden.

Q: What did you do to improve your game?
A: Nothing — I just lose a lot and that helps me learn [laughing].

Viktor Blom’s image has now replaced that of Daniel Negreanu on the homepage of PokerStars.com; how long it stays will likely depend on his success!
