Tony Bloom Bubbles the TV Final Table

Tony Bloom

On the first hand after being combined down to the unofficial final table, 2004 Aussie Millions champ Tony Bloom opened for 65,000 under the gun and was met by a three-bet to 170,000 from Isaac Haxton of PokerStars' Team Online. Action folded back around to Bloom, he moved all in, and Haxton snap-called.

Haxton: {q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}
Bloom: {j-Spades}{j-Clubs}

Both players found big pocket pairs, but as you can see Haxton's ladies were best. Bloom was in dire straits and in desperate need of a jack, but all he could do was watch helplessly as the board ran out a dry {a-Spades}{5-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{9-Spades}{4-Spades}.

It took just one hand for the unofficial final table to go down to the official final table of eight. Those players will now take a break before moving up to Studio 3 to play down to a winner.
