Today we learned Blom and Haxton have negotiated the terms of a play-to-the-death duel beginning in just two days. The rules are not the ones you see in the average, everyday SuperStar Showdown.This is where, to borrow and corrupt a phrase, stuff gets real.Blom and Haxton are both putting up $500,000. Beginning Saturday at 1pm ET, they will sit down for a SuperStar Showdown-format match. The blinds will be $200/$400. The game will be no-limit hold'em. The hand-cap?There isn't one.In normal SuperStar Showdowns, the match ends after 2,500 hands or whenever somebody has won $150,000. In this special match, the game will go on for four hours a day until one guy has a million bucks and the other guy has 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.

This showdown is sick! When I see a pot they are playing for all I can think about is that would pay for my truck, that one would pay for my house, there is my kids college fund. It's pretty exciting to watch.
Like poker, suck at poker, trying to get better at poker

Nice incentive by Pokerstars, Isildur making himself worth the paycheck imo
