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."

well the concept itself is nice- 4 tables at once at hu poker doesn't suit my taste. i can barely play 2 hu tables max, so 4 would be way overboard- multitabling hu is totally different to sng's or mtt's. since they play at high limits rake will not have any decent impact, but i imagine same concept played at micro stakes- they would end up winners of the hu match but would have a little to show for it

Something tells me that at the end of this year we'll have some sicker action on ftp than on pokerstars Big Smile

The four table concept can be a bit weird. What happens if each one wins on two tables? It can happen, one can't put this aside, so, will there be a tie? It doesnt make big sense.
