SuperStar Showdown: Blom, Haxton to face off in $1 millon match!

Viktor Blom and Isaac Haxton playing for a $1 million. Wow.

The SuperStar Showdown just keeps getting bigger over at PokerStars and this time Viktor "Isildur1" Blom and Isaac "Philivey2694" Haxton have agreed to face off for no less than $1 million!

According to PokerStars Blog, Blom and Haxton are both putting up $500,000. Beginning Saturday at 1pm ET, they will both sit down for a new SuperStar Showdown-format match. The blinds will be $200/$400 and the game no-limit hold'em.

The normal SuperStar Showdowns have always ended after 2,500 hands, but in this special match, the game will go on for four hours a day until one guy has a million bucks, leaving the other guy with nothing.

"-You read it correctly. If four hours passes on Saturday without one guy felting the other one for the full half-million bucks, Blom and Haxton will start again on Sunday. And then Monday. And so on until one guy's stack sits at zero.",  PokerStars Blog tells.

Here are the results from all the Superstar Showdowns' so far for Viktor "Isildur1" Blom:
