Viktor Blom destroys Daniel Negreanu in SuperStar Showdown

Viktor Blom destroys Daniel Negreanu in SuperStar Showdown

Monday, 21 March 2011

The hype about Daniel “KidPoker” Negreanu taking on Viktor “Isildur1” Blom at the SuperStar Showdown was beyond crazy with railbirds and players alike discussing this clash of old versus new, of the seasoned pro who had been working to keep up in NL against the young gun who wins millions like it was nothing.

We don’t want to call it an anti-climax, but... well, Negreanu lost his $150,000 bankroll in less than four hours and 1,500 hands after never really getting ahead in the match. It was as one-sided as a match of such a small sample size could be and while Negreanu ran around $50,000 under all-in EV it was clear who dominated the four-tabling $50/$100 showdown.

Despite this, even Blom himself – a man hardly known for his humility – admitted that Negreanu ran bad during their match. Nevertheless, he is more than willing to return to the tables at the same time next Sunday for another $150,000 match-up. Negreanu will be looking to take back the $150,000 he lost.
