Tags: Isaac Haxton, Malta, poker pro
Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 by "T".

Ever wondered what it's like being a full-time poker player with millions of dollars in the bank account? Well, if you ever happen to run into Isaac Haxton, you better not ask him.

Earlier today Haxton, a member of Team PokerStars Online, uploaded a blog on the subject in question to pokerstarsblog.

Tags: all-star showdown, isaac haxton, pokerstars, viktor blom
Posted on Friday, October 26, 2012 by "T".

PokerStars has changed the concept of the SuperStar Showdown quite a bit since Viktor "Isildur1" Blom left. The new challenge is called All-Star Showdown and 8 players will face each other in a heads-up tournament on PokerStars running from October 27 - November 4 (starting at 18:00 CET). Each match will take place over 4 tables at once and the blinds will double every 3,000 hands. Each match ends when a player busts on all 4 tables. 

In total, 5 players have signed up for the All-Star Showdown so far. All players will pay $100,000 each to enter the competition and Isaac Haxton, PokerStars latest signing, is one of them... 

"I'm excited to start my tenure with Team PokerStars with the chance to win a big title and a lot of money in my favourite form of poker," he said.

"There are no titles or champions in heads-up cash games, just winners and losers. This tournament will change that by crowning the first All-Star Showdown champion."

Tags: isaac haxton, isildur1, pokerstars, superstar showdown, viktor blom
Posted on Tuesday, April 03, 2012 by "T".

It only took 3 days (3 sessions of $200/$400 NLH) for the $1,000,000 SuperStar Showdown to be concluded as Viktor "Isildur1" Blom won the remaining $218k from Isaac Haxton last night. This means that Viktor "Isildur1" Blom has won half a million dollars from Haxton since Saturday and that he's up about $450k against Haxton in the 3 SuperStar Showdown matches they have played.

After that the SuperStar Showdown had come to an end, Blom decided to play some $100/$200 PLO against some regulars on PokerStars' nosebleed tables. Things, however, didn't go as planned for the young Swede and he decided to stop playing when he had lost $142k, which still left him with a $76,000 profit for the day and a 3rd place on the daily winners list.

In case you missed it: Last Sunday the first SuperStar Showdown of 2012 kicked off and Viktor "Isildur1" Blom and Isaac Haxton sat down at four $100/$200 NLH tables with $300,000 each. Isildur1 dominated the match and after 692 hands, when Haxton had reconnected for the 4th time due to unstable Internet connection, Viktor Blom was in the lead with $100,000 and they decided to continue the match another day.

The match resumed yesterday and Isildur1 increased his lead to about $130k over the first hundred hands. But Haxton kept a cool head and managed to get back into the game, and It didn't take long Haxton had gone from -$130k to -$70. The young Swede was folding several hands at this points, which made many of the spectators believe that he was afraid of losing the lead and therefore waited for "monster hands".
