The SuperStar Showdown Comes Down to The Wire

Isildur1 vs urnotindangr

Today's SuperStar Showdown match between Viktor "Isildur1" Blom and Scott "urnotindangr" Palmer proved that a match is never truely over until every last hand is dealt.

This match was the definition of a seesaw battle. With every passing moment seemed to come another lead change. However, despite the swings, neither player had more than a $60k lead at any point during the match. As the stacks grew, so did the tension on the rail. Isildur1 took a nearly $30k into the home stretch of the challenge, however, with less than 100 hands to go, Isildur made a huge 3bet river bluff, and unfortunately for him, ran into urnotindangr's flopped full house. The match ended with urnotindangr up $5,425.
