Blom Has a Match on His Hands

By Ian Hiaring, Rakeback.com Poker News Staff Writer

pokerstars-superstar-showdownAfter last week’s rematch between Viktor ‘isildur1’ Blom and Daniel Negreanu ended with Negreanu evening the score (even though he ended up down over the course of the two week match), Blom faced an opponent with not quite as much name recognition Sunday in the PokerStars SuperStar Showdown.

Scott ‘urnotindangr’ Palmer is a regular in the high stakes games and not nearly as well known to most fans as Negreanu, but ask anyone in the know and they’ll tell you he’s a rising star in the game.

Sunday was only part one of the two week match between Blom and Palmer, and after 2,500 hands Palmer leads by $5,245, and it wasn’t decided until the final hundred hands.

With just 68 hands remaining in the match, the players were essentially even, with Blom holding on to a slim $25 lead. Palmer managed to win a few key pots down the stretch to expand the lead heading into next week’s finale.

Log in to PokerStars next Sunday at 15:00 ET to watch the final 2,500 hands.
