Haxton Vs. Blom in SuperStar Showdown Round 3

Viktor “Isildur1” Blom haw nine recorded wins and four losses in PokerStars SuperStar Showdown since the first match took place in December 2010. Blom has more than $540K to show for profits over 13 matches and 11 opponents. Thus far, Isaac “philivey2694” Haxton has faced off against Blom twice.

In the first Blom vs. Haxton Showdown at $50/$100 stakes, Haxton profited over $41K. In the second battle between Blom and Haxton that took place a year later, at $100/$200 stakes Haxton ended up with a $5K+ profit, after recovering from a $100K deficit.

Obviously, Blom has a score to settle, since Haxton is the only player he’s lost to in the PokerStars SuperStar Showdown (see a complete history of Showdowns at the bottom). In healtkhy competition, the two have scheduled a third session in which both players will put up $500K. Winner will take all.

Unlike previous showdowns, in this Showdown, there will be no 2,500-hand cap, but rather the two players will compete on four $200/$400 NL tables for four hours per day until one player has lost it all. This may remind some of the Durrrr Challenge. Let’s hope the Blom/Haxton Showdown will actually finish though.

The $1 Million SuperStar Showdown began yesterday. Fans can watch form the virtual rails by logging onto PokerStars then “Search for a Team PokerStars Pro” to locate the players.

Since January 2011, Blom is up more than $1 million at PokerStars, while Haxton is up more than $700K.
