Negreanu to take on Isildur1

Daniel Negreanu will battle Isildur1 on March 20 and 27 One of the most established names in poker is set to take on the newest hot player in the online poker world in what is sure to be one of the most interesting poker showdowns in quite some time. Daniel Negreanu of Canada, an undisputed poker legend of the live tournament scene, will take on Viktor Blom of Sweden, who achieved global fame over the past year as the latest anonymous online poker player — known only as Isildur1 — to make millions.

The showdown will be held at PokerStars over the course of two consecutive Sundays, March 20 and 27. Both Negreanu and Blom will bring in $150,000 apiece and play 2,500 hands the first day beginning at 3 p.m., followed by another session of equal number the next week.

Negreanu was ranked first on the all-time poker earner list until last week when poker veteran Erik Seidel won $700,000 and took his place on top. Blom has only been known to poker fans since late 2009 when he drew eyes from all over the world by winning (and losing) huge sums online.

No matter how this duel turns out, it’s sure to be entertaining to follow!
