SuperStar Showdown 2012:  Viktor ‘Isidlur1’ Blom vs. Isaac Haxton

The Internet gambling world will be in for a real treat this Sunday when the PokerStars.com SuperStar Showdown returns after a 15 month hiatus to pit Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom against Isaac Haxton.

From the PokerStars blog

If revenge is, in fact, a dish best served cold, Viktor "Isildur1" Blom is doing it right. It's been nearly 15 months since he played his first SuperStar Showdown match. Indeed, it's been some 450 days since Blom dropped the first SuperStar Showdown to well-known rounder Isaac Haxton. Now, Blom wants another shot at Haxton. The dish isn't just cold. It's getting moldy. All the more perfect to shove it in Haxton's face?

Well, that remains to be seen.

This Sunday at 12pm ET, Blom and Haxton will face off again for a high-stakes match on PokerStars. The four-table match will last for as long as 2,500 hands. Nothing changed in those details since the last match. This time, however, the stakes have gone up.
