<strong>Scott <em>&rsquo;urnotindangr&rsquo; </em>Palmer</strong> beat <strong><em>&rsquo;Isildur1&rsquo; </em></strong>in a swingy game yesterday in their first of two <em>SuperStar Showdown</em> matches. Palmer ended up with a profit of $5,425.
After the one with Daniel Negreanu, there is once again a two-part duel going on in the SuperStar Showdown promotion: Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom faces Scott ’urnotindangr’ Palmer in two 2,500 hands matches, the first of which took place on Sunday, April 3. The two of them played heads-up on four $50/$100 NLHE tables with $150,000 challenge bankrolls.

It was ‘urnotindangr’ who started off better, although he definitely needed some luck: he went 3-bet all-in with pocket eights which ‘Isildur1’ called with queens, and it was the eight on the turn that literally turned the odds in favour of Palmer on the otherwise neutral board. A few minutes past, and the stacks were once again in the middle on the {#}T {#}7 {#}3 {#}4 board:

‘urnotindangr’: {#}K {#}8
‘Isildur1’: {#}9 {#}7

River: {#}8

‘Urnotindangr’ wins the pot with a pair of eights.

In the next 150 hands or so, Palmer managed to go +$50,000, but then, in the matter of only half an hour, Blom won seven buy-ins, taking the lead from his opponent. He kept taking the pots, amassing a lead of $50,150 by the 1,507th hand. Although ‘urnotindangr’ began to close in on ‘Isildur1’, the latter still had a massive lead of $24,000 by the last 100 hands.

In the finish, however, the tide was turning: ‘urnotindangr’ flopped a full to his pocket fives which helped him win a $58,850 monster pot that just evened the odds (Blom barreled to the river on the {#}5 {#}2 {#}2 {#}7 {#}4 board with {#}T {#}8 ). Palmer check-raised on the river and Blom went all-in, trying to make Palmer fold). ‘Urnotindangr’ also won a major pot with triple threes (he held {#}A {#}3 ) against ‘Isildur1’s’ pocket aces, finishing the session with a $5,425 profit.
