Blom Sends Another Packing

Blom is all smiles now

It's the Viktor Blom show at Table 2 right now. In the last pot, we picked up heads-up action between he and Matt Glantz, the latter betting out on the {10-Clubs} {8-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds}. When he did, Blom check-raised with a big stack of green chips, enough to cover his opponent. Glantz made the quick call for his last ~150,000, and the cards were on their backs.

Blom: {A-Spades} {J-Clubs}
Glantz: {A-Diamonds} {10-Diamonds}

Glantz was behind as the cards lay, but he had a fair amount of help cards to try and chase down. The turn {J-Hearts} stole a couple of those outs, though, and the river {A-Hearts} was not enough to get him over the hump.

With that, Glantz has become the latest of Blom's victims, and the blonde-topped Swede is up in contention for the chip lead with just shy of 800,000.
