Viktor Blom Doubles; Opponent Tortured

Viktor Blom Rakes In The Chips

Action opened with an early position raise to 700 which received one call. The player in the cutoff three-bet to 2,600 only to have Viktor Blom four-bet to 5,800 from the big blind. The other two players got out of the way rather quickly and action was back to the cutoff.

The player in the cutoff five-bet to 12,000 and action was back to Blom. Blom shuffled his chips before moving in 18,400 for a six-bet.

"Can't do that," the dealer said. "Action is capped at four raises."

"What are you talking about?" replied Blom. The entire table protested with cries of "What?" and "This is no-limit". The dealer listened to the words of the table and the hand progressed. Blom's opponent moved all in and Blom let out a sigh and called.

Blom: {A-Spades}{k-Hearts}
Opponent: {K-Clubs}{K-Spades}

The dealer dealt out a great flop for Blom as it came {A-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}. The dealer was about to deal fourth street but was stopped by an ESPN employee who wanted to hold the action for taping. Blom's opponent made to wait and stare at the board that cracked his kings for about 45 seconds until the camera crews arrived.

Once the camera crew was there the dealer continued with the deal and put out the {A-Clubs} on the turn. This gave Blom trip aces but also gave his opponent a glimmer of hope as any club that did not fill up Blom would give him the win with a flush.

Fortunately for Blom the river was the {7-Spades} and he was able to double up. Blom's all in was for roughly 44,000 and he is now sitting pretty around 90,000 in chips.
