Viktor Blom and Dan Cates to Battle it out at PokerStars SuperStar Showdown

It’s not every day that you can find two multi-tabling giants battling it out at the virtual felt. But thanks to PokerStars Superstar Showdown, we finally get to see Isildur1 and wooki3z – or rather, Jungleman12 – in one arena. One’s strengths pitted against the other’s, a match made even more interesting by the fact that they have similar playing styles.  

The SuperStar Showdown

As you probably know by now, the SuperStar Showdown is a relatively new gimmick by PokerStars that involves pitting Isildur1 against various opponents in a riveting heads up battle. Their strategy seems to be working quite well since people are very much interested with the battles and how they play out. Isildur1 first took on Isaac “philivey2694” Haxton, which ended up in a rather humiliating loss on Blom’s part, especially since it was the first ever incarnation of the SuperStar Showdown which was made specifically for him and yet he blotched it. His second battle was with Tony G, a match which ended with Isildur1’s victory, much to the embarrassment of Tony G, who did not hesitate at all to launch a few disparaging barbs against his opponent, only to swallow them as his loss became imminent.

So, that makes Blom’s current score 1:1 in terms of wins and losses. This new fight of his will be the tie-breaker. Viktor “Isildur1” Blom and Dan “Jungleman12” Cates will be battling it out at the $50/$100 No Limit Hold’em Tables.

Cates vs. Blom

Dan Cates had a stellar 2010. He was the biggest online earner, managing to amass a whopping $5.5 million profit in cash games alone. Cates has been lauded for his talent in multi-tabling, something which Blom has been praised for as well. Indeed, they’re well matched in terms of skills so it’s difficult to tell who the winner will be. As usual, the two players will play 2,500 hands in all, and the one who has more money by the end of the session will be the winner. As agreed upon, the two of them will play No Limit Hold’em, something which Cates is said to be a master of.

It’s certainly going to be a hard session for Isildur1 so he better start preparing if he wants to prove his superiority and to justify having the SuperStar Showdown focused on him. If you want to watch the action, just be sure to be at the PokerStars site this Sunday afternoon.
