Isaac Haxton last night won the postponed SuperStars Showdown match against Viktor "Isildur1" Blom. Haxton managed to dig himself out of a $100,000 hole in order to claim the victory.
Isaac Haxton and Viktor "Isildur1" Blom last night resumed their SuperStar Showdown meeting, after the rematch had been postponed by technical difficulties on Sunday.
At the point of putting the contest on a halt after around 600 hands on Sunday, Blom already held a lead of nearly $100,000 hands.
However,this would all change during the remainder of the match.
Haxton soon managed to dig his way out of the hole, and by the time the duelers had reached the agreed 2,500 hands, the Malta-based American had completed the unlikely comeback, finishing with a slim $5,093 profit.
With the victory, Haxton's record against Blom in the SuperStar Showdown series is now 2-0, following the two players' first encounter in December 2010.
Haxton on this occasion took home a premiering win worth $41,701 - to date still the biggest loss inflicted by anyone on "Isildur1" in the signature series.
Blom himself is now running an overall record of nine wins and threes losses, with Daniel Negreanu being the only other player to have beaten him so far.
All in all, the Swede has accumulated profits of $657,000 from the action in the SuperStar Showdowns from opponents like Rui Cao, Terje Augdal and Scott "urnotindangr" Palmer.
The next round will already take place this weekend when Blom faces heads-up specialist Alexander "Kanu7" Miller on Sunday, March 18, at 6pm GMT.
