Viktor Blom defeats Daniel Negreanu in PokerStars showdown

22/3/2011

Swedish poker sensation Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom continued his winning streak when he defeated Canadian opponent Daniel Negreanu in the highly anticipated heads up no-limit Texas Holdem showdown last week.

The two PokerStars sponsored players went head to head for four hours, but it was their newest signing Blom who walked away with Negreanu’s $150,000 chip stack after playing just 1439 hands. The match was scheduled for a total of 2,500 hands or until one player had lost their entire bankroll. Negreanu is Blom’s first opponent to be defeated before the initial 2,500 hands are played.

Negreanu felt he had been defeated due to a string of bad luck and took to his Twitter page to voice his views, where he said “this has been pretty disgusting so far. Can’t imagine running any worse.”

The next Negreanu/Blom showdown will take place on Sunday 27 March, but since Blom took all of Negreanu’s bankroll, Negreanu must do the same to Blom next week just to draw. It looks set to be a tense but interesting match.
