Almost 2 months have passed since Viktor "Isildur1" Blom took on an opponent in the cash game challenge SuperStar Showdown at PokerStars. But on Sunday it's finally time for another SuperStar Showdown as Rui "PepperoniF" Cao has accepted the challenge, which will be played on four $50/$100 tables - 2 NLH tables and 2 PLO tables.
Blom has won 7 out of 9 challenges so far and he is up about $350,00. But the match on Sunday might be one of his toughest matches so far since he's up against one of 2011's most successful high stakes players. In total, Rui Cao has won $1.4 million at PokerStars and $340,000 at Full Tilt this year, and his winning streak seems to be far from over. He has been interested in taking part in the SuperStar Showdown since the very beginning, but for some reason he decided to wait until now before challenging Blom. Maybe a tactic? We will have to wait and see.
Ladies and gentlemen, don't miss out on the SuperStar Showdown challenge at PokerStars on Sunday! May the best man win!
