Daniel Negreanu Beats Viktor Blom in Rematch

Wins $26,500 in Part II of their SuperStar Showdown


Daniel NegreanuAt one point on Sunday, Viktor “Isildur1” Blom was in the midst of another killing of Daniel “KidPoker” Negreanu in part II of their PokerStars SuperStar Showdown contest.

Negreanu was down $119,600 in just 1,279 hands, just one week after losing his entire $150,000 in speedy fashion. Everything was looking disastrous for the Canadian once again, but he was able to beat the odds and amazingly finish the 2,500 hand quota in the black $26,500. You can check out some of the hand histories by reading Negreanu’s Card Player blog.

The $50-$100 no-limit hold’em battle between Blom and Negreanu has come to a close, with Blom winning $123,500 across their two-part duel.

The SuperStar Showdown will return in one week with the first installment of another 5,000-hand, two-part match. Blom’s opponent on April 3 will be Scott “urnotindangr” Palmer.
