Swedish Taxman Looks to Victor “Isuldur 1” Blom for $149 Million

by Lou on January 25, 2011

Now that the formerly anonymous nosebleed stakes online poker player—who until recently was known only by his handle, Isuldur1—has come out and identified himself, he’s facing a tax bill of up to $149 million.

Viktor Blom went public after signing to play with Team PokerStars recently. According to a Swedish web site, Blom suffered this really bad beat after Swedish tax authorities said they were going to investigate internet poker players and companies.

Swedish financial newspaper Dagens Nyheter estimates that Blom owes $149 million, and whether that’s an accurate figure or merely a guess, whichever way the investigation turns out, it’s looking to be costly one for Blom.
