With the board showing and about 70,000 in the middle, Viktor Blom's opponent checked and Blom fired 26,500. His opponent thought for a couple of minutes, Blom sitting with his shirt up over his mouth and staring forward as he did.
Finally he folded, and Blom exhaled visibly, blinking rapidly as he scooped the chips.
"Ace high?" he asked his opponent. "What did you have?" came the response. "If you tell me, I'll tell you," said Blom. From there Blom ran through different possibilities, sounding at times as though he were admitting to having a flush draw or ("...no wait...") an open-ended straight draw or ("...no, no, it was a...") perhaps a queen.
"That's too many hands," said his opponent, and the table laughed.
