Viktor 'Isildur1' Blom sniffed out a bluff to win the 2018 partypoker Live Millions Germany Main Event. The €5,300 buy-in event at the King's Casino in Rozvadov attracted 1,022 runners. With only a pair of Kings on an Ace-high board with three hearts and possible straight, Blom made a "sick call" against Pavel Plesuv to win the Main Event. Plesuv whiffed on a flush draw and only held a pair of Queens when he shoved the river and put Blom to the test. Blom tanked, yet made a remarkable hero-call to win the pot and the tournament. Blom banked €850,000 for the victory.

Sometimes the word "sick" is overused. Okay, all the time. With the exception of ElkY's usage of the terminology, "sick" has become a hackneyed term. Heck, I use it at least fourteen times a day for various reasons. But last night in RozVegas, Viktor 'Isildur1' Blom demonstrated his testicular fortitude and made a sick call in a sick hand, which might be the sickest call thus far in 2018. Cue Phish's Down With Disease.

The King's Casino in Rozvadov hosted the 2018 partypoker Live Millions Germany. The series kicked off with a trio of high roller events, which were won by Patrik Antonius, Johannes Becker, and Chi Zhang. The Main Event kicked off last week with four opening flights. They finally played out their final table on Sunday. A total of 1,022 runners took a shot in the €5,300 buy-in Main Event. The final prize pool was €5 million, with initially €1M set aside for the champ.

Adrian Mateos missed the final table by a few spots, but he finished in 12th overall. Other notables who cashed and went deep included... Ivo Donev, Philipp Gruissem, Felipe Ramos, Leo Nash, Niall Farrell, Jason Wheeler, Patrick Leonard, Vojtech Ruzicka, PCA champ Maria Lampropulos, Jack Sinclair, Pierre Neuville, Martin Staskzo, Jessica Pilkington, Tim Adams, Ole Schemion, and Julian Thomas.

Ondrej Drozd from the Czech Republic came into the final table with a drastic lead. Aristeidis Moschonas from Greece was second overall with eight remaining. Viktor Blom was tied for third when the final table commenced and Poland's Radoslaw Wesierski was the shorty.

Niko Wieland, the lone German at the final table, busted first at the final table. Despite a sizable advantage going into the final eight, Aristeidis Moschonas ran out of gas and busted in seventh place. Local hero Ondrej Drozd was dunzo in sixth place. The epic run from Poland's Radoslaw Wesierski ended in fifth place. Joao Simao was running good all week/weekend in Germany with a couple deep runs in High Roller events. Simao took fourth place and walked away with €280K. One of my favorite names in poker, Richie Silcock, finished in third place and earned a payday worth €400K.

The heads-up bout between Moldova's Pavel Plesuv and Viktor Blom would become a match for the ages due to the outrageous outcome of the final hand. Blom cut a heads-up deal with Pavel Plesuv to chop up the money, but they played out for the title and a little cash (ho hum, €100K).

On the final hand that everyone's talking about, Pavel Plesuv trailed with Carte Dame de carreauCarte 7 de carreau against Blom's Carte Roi de cœurCarte 6 de carreau. They both hit the flop of Carte Roi de carreauCarte Dame de cœurCarte 9 de cœur and improved to a pair. Blom led with top pair. The turn was the Carte As de carreau: and Plesuv picked up a flush draw. The Carte 5 de cœur spiked on the river. Plesuv missed his diamond-flush draw, but a third heart put a possible heart-flush out there in addition to a Broadway straight. With 370M in the pot, Pavel Plesuv shoved for 299M. Blom had at least 344 and had his opponent covered. With the championship on the line, the ever-cool Scandi headed into the tank. Blom only held a pair of Kings.

We've all been in that spot… either way ahead or way behind. Blom picked up his cards a couple of times and appeared to be on the verge of folding... yet he could not release his hand. If Blom folded and was wrong, then he'd be the dorkenheimer. If Blom made the call and was wrong, then he'd be the donk du jour. However, if Blom made the call and was right… then he'd get children named after him and he'd get statues erected in public squares all over Sweden.

Blom wanted to fold, but seemed to be trying to talk himself into calling. Pavel Plesuv didn't say a word while Blom glanced at his cards and the glistening trophy, which sat on the table. A reluctant Blom eventually called and tabled his pair of Kings. He seemed a little surprised they were good. Blom bested Plesuv's Queens. As ElkY would say, "So sick."

Blom banked €850,000 as terms of the deal, while Pavel Plesuv took down a heady-score worth €750K.
