The high stakes tables at Full Tilt Poker may soon resurgence should Viktor Blom win the 2010 World Series of Poker Europe Main Event. In what could be the worst kept secret in all of poker, Blom is widely considered to be the mystery man from Sweden who turned the high-stakes tables at Full Tilt Poker on their head in late 2009, ‘Isildur1’.

Blom entered Day 3 of the WSOPE with nearly 450,000 chips, slightly ahead of Bojan Gledovic. Some other big name poker pros high on the leader-board include Andrew Pantling who currently sits in 4th place on the leader-board; Phil Ivey who is 6th in chips; Arnaud Mattern who is 7th in chips; Yevgeniy Timoshenko who is in 13th place; and David “Bakes” Baker who is in 15th place.

Scattered amongst the 66 remaining players are last year’s runner-up Daniel Negreanu, Doyles Room Poker Pro Hoyt Corkins, High-Stakes poker player Freddy Deeb, 2-time WSOP bracelet winner Greg Mueller, and JP Kelly who narrowly missed picking up his 3rd WSOP bracelet in Event #3.

Day 3 of the WSOPE will play down to just 27 players, and will see the money bubble burst when just 36 players remain in the tournament.
