Blom readies himself for next SuperStar Showdown
Viktor "Isildur1" Blom seems to have missed his role as the king of the high-rollers. After a two month break, he came into his last SuperStar Showdown and dismantled his opponent in fewer than 2,300 hands. Now, just a couple of weeks later, Blom is ready for another go. PokerStars announced this morning that Blom is set up to play his next SuperStar Showdown this coming Sunday.
Blom is scheduled to take on Terje 'Terken89' Augdal on July 3. Both players have set aside $150,000 for the match. The SuperStar Showdown, as usual, will take place across four tables. Blom and Augdal will split the tables half and half with PLO on two tables and no-limit hold'em on the other two.
It's now been about six months since Blom started playing the SuperStar Showdown events. Here's how he's fared so far (click on any of the links to see full coverage of the matches):
