Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom and Eugene ‘MyRabbiFoo’ Katchalov clashed on Sunday in the fourth 2,500 hand SuperStar Showdown heads-up game on $50/$100 NLHE tables. Blom started out better; after only 403 hands, he was up $11,850. Although Katchalov managed to close in on him, Isildur1 won a $30,500 pot with which he once again had the lead.

Following Blom also winning both a $35,000 and a $12,000 pot, Katchalov finally earned $44,300 with {#}5 {#}6 against Isildur1’s {#}4 {#}6 on the {#}8 {#}7 {#}5 {#}3 {#}3 board. Before long, however, a series of bad luck for Katchalov started, eventually enabling Blom to win the Showdown: Isildur1 called his 5-bet all-in on the {#}8 {#}4 {#}3 flop, and showed {#}T {#}8 against MyRabbiFoo’s pocket jacks; unfortunately for the latter, the {#}8 turn and the neutral river gave the $31,500 pot to the Swede.

Isildur1: sorry
MyRabbiFoo: all good :)


Katchalov’s misfortune seemed to be there to stay. He first lost with pocket queens against {#}K {#}8 , then he busted out on one of the tables with {#}A {#}6 against {#}T {#}7 (in both cases, Blom had two pairs). In their final hand, he called Isildur1’s preflop all-in with {#}J {#}J , who held {#}A {#}A . The board coming neutral, Blom ended up with $111,750 in profit, winning the third time in the SuperStar Showdowns series.

MyRabbiFoo: gg man...u obv played really well
Isildur1: i ran really crazy, if not 8 would come on rivwhen we were even
Isildur1: u would beat me i think
MyRabbiFoo: yea i ran bad couple times :/...but u still played really well, dunno how match would have turned out in other case of course
