Quick Break

Level 18 : 25,000/50,000, 5,000 ante

Viktor Blom has to pee.

He was kind enough to grant Galen Hall and Dan Shak a short break before dinner, so they've returned the favor and allowed him to step away. We'll be back in a flash.

Top Pair Good For Shak

Level 18 : 25,000/50,000, 5,000 ante

Shak Flops the Joint

Level 18 : 25,000/50,000, 5,000 ante

Viktor Blom opened from the button, and both Galen Hall and Dan Shak came along with him to see a family flop.

The dealer spread out {9-Hearts} {10-Hearts} {Q-Clubs}, and it checked around to the {10-Spades} turn. When Hall checked again, Shak decided to fire out with 300,000, and both opponents folded in turn.

When the dealer pushed him the pot, Shak said, "Look at that flop!" and flashed his king-jack. "How did I not win a huge pot there?" he lamented.

Shak Within Striking Distance

Viktor Blom raised first to act, and Dan Shak called to see what the board would bring.

For starters, it brought {5-Hearts} {2-Spades} {A-Hearts}, and Shak check-called 115,000. On the turn {K-Clubs}, Blom bet another 280,000, and Shak matched him once again. The river came the {Q-Diamonds}, and the two men were content to check it down.

Shak showed {A-Diamonds} {10-Clubs} for the winning pair of aces, and Blom flashed his {K-Hearts} {7-Hearts} that couldn't get over the hump.

Shak has closed the gap, climbing to within a million chips of Blom now.
