Blom Does Some Damage


Dan Shak opened to 165,000 from the button, and Viktor Blom flatted from his big blind to proceed. The flop came down {10-Clubs} {2-Clubs} {2-Hearts}, and it check-checked to the {3-Spades} turn. Blom led out with 180,000 now, and Shak made the call, and the {3-Clubs} put two pair on board on fifth street. Shak paid off another bet from Blom — 275,000 this time — but his hand was second best.

Blom tabled {9-} {9-}, and Shak rainbow-mucked. As the dealer pushed the pot away from him, Shak spoke up.

"You might have been able to win it all there," he admitted. "I had a big ace. I'm not sure I would have folded it preflop."
