Blom Among First to Exit After Three-Way Cooler

Viktor Blom

Viktor Blom, Leonard Maue, and Niklas Astedt had gotten all of their chips in preflop. Blom was the one with the shortest stack, while Maue played the starting stack of 500,000 and Astedt covered them both.

Astedt claimed he liked his chances, but the final king did not show itself on the       runout. Maue's aces held without a sweat, and he tripled up while Blom headed for an early exit.

On another table, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier was also eliminated.

Lakemeier Came to Play

Giuliano Bendinelli raised to 50,000 from the button and fresh entry Jens Lakemeier defended the big blind. The flop came down     and both players checked. Lakemeier checked again on the   turn and a 40,000 bet followed from Bedinelli.

Lakemeier then responded with a raise to 115,000 chips, and Bendinelli obliged with a call. The   river fell and quickly shoved all in, covering the 225,000 stack of Bedinelli.

Bendinelli went deep in the tank and spent several time bank extensions before laying his hand down. Lakemeier proudly showed    for a stone-cold bluff, which got some pleased reactions out of the other players at the table.

Rocco Strikes Early

Michael Rocco limped from under the gun and Gab Yong Kim did the same in middle position. Chris Brewer called in the small blind, while Viktor Blom checked his big blind option.

The action checked to Kim on the     flop, who fired 30,000. Brewer and Blom folded before Rocco called.

Both players then checked the   turn to see the   river. Rocco led out for 230,000, producing a fold from Kim to take down an early pot.
