V<strong>iktor 'Isildur1' Blom</strong> once again defeated another opponent in his heads-up nosebleed poker challenge, the <em>SuperStar Showdown</em>. <strong>Terje Augdal</strong>, the Norwegian pro lost his whole buy-in ($150,000) in just 1566 hands.
As we reported, Viktor Blom busted Rui Cao on June 19 in 2257 hands, booking another win in the SuperStar Showdown promotion. His next opponent came to be the Norwegian pro Terje 'Terken89' Augdal. However, Blom was at his best again, and ended the clash earlier than the planned 2,500 hands.

The two northern pros sat down at the four (two $50/$100 NLHE and two $50/$100 PLO) tables yesterday afternoon. The first big pot was won by Terken89, he went pre-flop all-in with {#}A {#}K , Blom called with {#}T {#}T , but the ace fell, and Blom was set back. However, Blom quickly took the lead with his massively agressive style; he defended himself quite well against his opponent's mid-raising strategy.

Isildur1 took the lead soon. Terken89 opened with $200 in an NLHE hand, Isildur1 3bet to $800, Terken89 called. The flop came {#}Q {#}7 {#}6 . Isildur1 bet $1,000, Terken89 called, just as he called his turn $2,450 bet seeing the 8s. They pushed their stacks in on the river, which came {#}8 . Terken89 has shown {#}Q {#}T , but he fell short to the {#}5 {#}4 straight Isildur1 held.

The Swedish PokerStars pro already lead by $46 after 400 hands, and after 1145 hands Terken89 had already used all his add-ons. By the 1561st hand the game only commenced at one NLHE table. The game was soon over, the final hand started with the $300 raise of Isildur1, which Terken89 3bet to $1,000. Isildur went all-in, Terken89 called.

Even though luck was on Viktor Blom's side, we can't say he wasn't better; he clearly outplayed his opponent, which makes him a 9-2 winner in the SuperStars Showdown so far, and he booked a total profit of $651,941.

However, the two grinders seem to be good friends though, Augdal didn't seem to be that upset at his opponent in the chat:
 "coming out tonight?" he asked. "maybe, was out yesterday, a bit hungover. u in london?" replied Blom. "yeah, drinks on u obv," Augdal replied.

Isildur1's next opponent is yet to be announced.
