what else to expect from poker- it is swingy by nature, especially when dudes who are competing one against another are experienced and have similar playing qualities- it's similar to soccer when two top teams meet for a match- you cannot be sure who will win? besides the bookie

I dont think this can be called as win for Haxton, and lost for Viktor. Only think that matter is the money baybe! I watched a lot of Viktor's heads up games, with less audiance then there was on SuperStar Showdown, and those games are important for him. He is crasy, he is aggresive, he is the gambler, HE IS RICH!

Haxton did it again? Twice against Blom? This guy must be thrilling inside, thinking he is the best or something. The number of times things turned upside down in the resume of the match is incredible: first was Blom leading, then Haxton made his way to the top, then everything was on Blom’s side and he decides to go on the last hand to end up losing the match by $5,000. I think Blom considers this a tie, but Haxton have all the motives to be happy, winning Blom two times in a row.

Quite the accomplishment to beat Blom twice, makes you wonder what would have happened if the weather hadn't knocked things out. It certainly gave Haxton a chance to regroup and prepare himself a little differently for day 2. Crazy amounts of for sure...
