Isildur1 vs. Haxton - SuperStar Showdown Rematch Today

Online Poker | estimated reading time
2012. March 11.
Viktor <em>'Isildur1' </em>Blom will face the only player again who managed to defeat him during his <em>PokerStars Superstar Showdown </em>promotion: Isaac Haxton.
SuperStar Showdown

The two online legends clashed more than a year ago on 10 December, 2010. They played heads-up at 4 $50/100 NLHE and PLO tables, with a bankroll of $150,000. The showdown was set to go until 2,500 hands or until one of them goes bust.

After the 2,500 hands Isaac Haxton had a profit of $41,701, defeating the challenger Blom in his first showdown. After the bad start Isildur1 revved the engines up, and defeated all his remaining opponents. However Daniel Negreanu once overtook the Swedish pro, but as they were set to play a rematch showdown consisting of 2 times 2,500 hands, and Isildur1 beat him in the other part, he won that event as well, scoring 10 victories in a row.

Therefore, Blom's only real match seems to be the American Haxton. The two players now decided it is time for the revenge, they will sit down at 4 $100/200 NLHE tables today at 12:00 ET.

"No one has ever more consistently made me miserable when playing against them, Haxton said after the match. I guess I'd put (Phil) Ivey in second for that, but it's honestly not that close" - said Haxton. According to him, the Swedish pro is the most aggressive player against whom he played, and playing against him is unlike anything else.
