While most of the poker world focused on WSOP Europe and PokerStars' WCOOP last week, a £100,000 buy-in tournament took place at Aspinalls, a private gaming club in London, England. Among the 21-players to show up for the expensive tournament were Phil Ivey, Sam Trickett, JC tran, Erik Seidel, Tobias Reinkeier etc.
Last Sunday, another SuperStar Showdown was played at PokerStars. This time Viktor "Isildur1" Blom took on Terje "Terken89" Augdal from Norway, and it ended up being one of the most action-filled SuperStar Shodown matches so far. Already in the first hand both players went all-in - Blom with TT and Augdal with AK. Two aces fell on the board and Augdal took a $10,000 lead. However, about 100 hands later, Blom was suddenly in the lead with about $7,000. And after 250 hands had been played, his lead had increased with another $10,000, and 50 hands later another $5000.
