Viktor Blom wins the $1,000,000 SuperStar Showdown

Tags: isaac haxton, isildur1, pokerstars, superstar showdown, viktor blom
Posted on 03 April 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.

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".

Posted on 26 April 2011 by "T".

Last Sunday Viktor "Isildur1" Blom took on the second online qualifier in a special 1/10-sized edition of the SuperStar Showdown. This time it was a player with the alias "Mastermixus" who had qualified through satellites and received a $15,000 bankroll to play 2,500 hands of $5/$10 no-limit hold'em against Isildur1. 

After 2500 hands had been played, Isildur1 was the winner with a profit of $1279. His opponent, "Mastermixus", had $13.721 left and got to keep all of it. He must have been very satisfied with the money and to have played so well against one of the world's best NLH heads-up players.
