Haxton, who won the last encounter between the pair by a tiny margin is rated a 1.91 favourite.“Last superstar showdown saw some extremely interesting and high stakes betting take place, with some well known poker professional betting up to $50,000 on either player,” read a statement from Matchbook.com.“It seemed like the majority of action favored Haxton but it will be interesting to see what the opinion is for this match since the stakes have been upped once again and the length of play may be substantially longer.”Follow the Superstar Showdown action at PokerStars.
