|Blinds||30,000 / 60,000|
We've put another level in the books, and the three gentlemen are stepping away for a quick break. We'll be right back with a fresh batch of hard counts from the table.
Galen Hall raised on the button and Viktor Blom defended his big blind.
The flop came down and Blom checked. Hall bet 90,000 and Blom called quickly, landing the on the turn. Blom checked over to Hall who after a few moments bet 235,000. Blom called rather quickly again and the hit the river.
Both checked and Blom tabled for a flush to win the pot.
Viktor Blom made it 80,000 to go from the small blind, and Galen Hall called from the big to see the flop.
It came out , and Blom continued out with another 100,000. Hall matched it, and they check-checked through the turn. On the river, the drew one more check from Blom, and Hall only needed 125,000 chips to coax a quick fold from his opponent.
Viktor Blom raised to 75,000 on the button and Dan Shak defended his big blind.
The flop was checked by both. When the hit the turn, Shak check-called 140,000. The fell on the river and Shak fired 250,000, getting a quick fold from Blom.
Another quick batch of photos from our photographical sidekick, Joe Giron.
Dan Shak raised to 85,000 on the button and Galen Hall called from the big blind.
The flop came down and Hall checked. Shak bet 100,000, getting a quick fold from Hall.
"Does anybody remember the last pot I won?" Galen Hall just piped up in between hands. "Like, even taking the blinds?"
It has indeed been quite a while, maybe even more than 20 minutes since chips were pushed to Hall's corner.
Galen Hall is struggling and hasn't won a pot recently.
