Islidur1 SuperStar Showdown

Islidur1 vs. Tony G

by , Jan 3, 2011 | 1:20 pm

The second installment of the Islidur SuperStar Showdown took place yesterday evening on PokerStars. After getting beat by Isaac Haxton in the first match Islidur1 took on Tony G in the 2,500 hand heads-up match. By the time the 9 hour match was concluded Islidur1 came out victorious with a final winning margin of $44,820.

At different points of the match each player held a lead of at least $70,000 before the biggest hands of the match even happened. The largest hand of the match came on one of the PLO tables when both players were sitting with over 60k each. Tony G was the aggressor for the entire hand and was the one who got the players all-in after the river when the board read PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket. Tony G held the lead throughout the hand with his PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket but the river Photobucket was enough for Islidur1 to steal the $124,300 pot with his PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket.

As the matched closed Tony G went into desperation mode and tried to make a move with PhotobucketPhotobucket but ran into the PhotobucketPhotobucket of Islidur1. After this hand Islidur held a $45,000 lead and that was where the match ended.

Post match comments by Tony G can be found on his blog where has laid down the challenge for Islidur1 to come over to Party Poker.

Who is next in line for the SuperStar Showdown? Some think it will be Phil Galfond while others think that a Islidur/Haxton rematch is possible. PokerStars Pro David Williams hinted in the chat box last night that David “Viffer” Peat has sent in a proposal for a challenge between him and Islidur1 take place live at PCA this month. Keep an eye on the official SuperStar Showdown page for the announcement of the next opponent.
