SuperStar Showdown: Tony G Steps Up

Tony G

Isildur1 will face infamous trash-talker Tony G in the next edition of the SuperStar Showdown on PokerStars.

On Jan. 2 Tony G and Isildur1 will each put $150,000 on the line in 2,500 hands of half No-Limit Hold’em and half Pot-Limit Omaha.

The winner is the player who finishes up after 2,500 hands or completely exhausts the other player’s $150k stack.

Isildur1, who is rumored to be Swede Victor Blom, was defeated by Isaac Haxton in the first edition of the SuperStar Showdown last week.

There were several significant swings in the session but when the final card was dealt, Isildur1 was down $40k to Haxton.

Tony G and Isildur1 already have some history with each other.

Last spring Tony G offered to stake Isildur1 in the PartyPoker Big Game IV in London. Apparently Isildur1 initially agreed to play but backed out at the last minute.

Meanwhile Tony G will be facing a red-hot Isildur1. After racking up some big losses in previous weeks, Isildur1 is currently up more than $300k in the high stakes games on PokerStars this week.

The match is set to go off at 4 p.m. ET this Sunday on PokerStars for anyone who is interested in railing the online poker competition. We’ll also have complete coverage and results on Monday.
