The now public identity of Viktor “Isildur1” Blom is once again in the public eye in the form of Swedish tax officials. “Isildur1” remained anonymous during years of stunning online play where he gained millions in earnings in online poker sites.

The player revealed his identity last month when he signed with Team PokerStars Pro to play under their flag. He may have gotten more than he bargained for, as Swedish tax officials quickly started an investigation into unpaid taxes by ‘Isildur1″ totaling an alleged $149 Million.

Blom, a 20-year old from Ed, Sweden won millions on different online poker sites last year. Swedish Tax Agencies are geared to fully investigate internet poker companies that say they operate overseas but have local operations in Sweden.

Tax authorities had no comment about Viktor “Isildur1,” however they confirmed the general probe into online poker players and companies operating in Sweden.

A spokesperson for the Sweden Tax Agency Erik Boman said, “Internet poker is something we’re looking into and I know this poker player, but I can’t comment on whether we’ve opened a case,”.   Time will tell whether “isildur1” played the right cards by signing with PokerStars and coming out into the open.
