On Hand #113 of Table 2, Bertrand Grospellier finished off Viktor Blom.

Grospellier min-raised to 60 on the button, Blom called, and the flop was {5-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{k-Spades}. Blom checked, Grospellier fired 67, and Blom check-raised to 210. Grospellier clicked it back, making it 353, and Blom re-clicked it back, committing 496 of his 652-chip stack.

Grospellier clicked it back on last time, making it 639, and Blom moved all in for 13 more chips. Grospellier called.

Grospellier: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}
Blom: {k-Clubs}{10-Clubs}

Blom was crushed, and Grospellier held as the turn and river came {6-Spades}, {j-Spades} respectively.

Grospellier had the match won, but the two continued to battle on Table 3. We asked Isaac Haxton whether or not the two had a side bet, and he informed us that he didn't believe so.

Grospellier had a large chip advantage, but Blom doubled a handful of times. On the 160th and final hand, Blom had the button and raised to 120 with the blinds at 20/40. Grospellier called, and the flop was {6-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{2-Clubs}. Grospellier check-called a 240-chip bet, and the turn produced the {5-Hearts}. Grospellier checked again, Blom fired 720, and Grospellier moved all in for effectively 1,588. Blom called.

Blom: {6-Spades}{3-Clubs}
Grospellier: {a-Spades}{7-Clubs}

The turn was a fourth club - the {k-Clubs} - and Grospellier successfully swept Blom.

There will now be a break until 17:00. If you see Tom Dwan, tell him that there is an anxious crowed at The Vic awaiting him!
