Viktor "Isildur1" Blom Wins $51k In Third "Superstar Showdown"



Viktor Blom Profile

Viktor "Isildur1" Blom finished with a profit of $51,196 to defeat Daniel "w00ki3z." Cates in the third "Superstar Showdown" on Pokerstars earlier today.

Today's victory for "Isildur1" means that he is now 2-1 in "Superstar Showdown" matches. Viktor "Isildur1" Blom now has victories against Cates (+51k) and Tony G (+44k) and a loss at the hands of Isaac "philivey2694" Haxton (-40k).

The "Showdown" between Blom and Cates (also known as "jungleman12" on Full Tilt Poker) involved 2,500 hands of $50/$100 No Limit Hold'em spread over a total of four tables.

Viktor Blom still managed to post a profit of over $51k despite losing this hand:

"Isildur1" with a stack of $27,200. "w00ki3z." with a stack of $44,550. "Isildur1" has the button.

After some pre-flop raising, the flop comes:

5h-3s-4s

A raising war develops, and there is nearly $24k in the pot when the turn brings the 7d.

Cates checks, "Isildur1" pushes all-in (about $15,300) and Cates makes the call. The two players turn over:

"Isildur1" - 4c-5c
"w00ki3z." - 7h-8s

"Isildur1" is well ahead with his two pair, but the river brings the 8d, giving Cates a better two pair and the $54,400 pot.

--

A short time before that hand took place, "Isildur1" managed to take down a pot of nearly $50k after rivering a straight.

With the board reading 4c-8s-Tc-As-Kd and $14k in the pot, "w00ki3z." leads out with a bet of $11,500, "Isildur1" raises to $22,600, putting himself all-in, and "w00ki3z." calls. The two players turn over:

"Isildur1" - Qd-Jc
"w00ki3z." - Ts-Ks

"Isildur1" rivered the Broadway straight and took down the $49,500 pot.

--

Based on the chat that took place shortly after the match between Cates and Blom ended, it appears as though Daniel Negreanu might be up next in the "Superstar Showdown".
