Tournament of Champions

Krost Extends Lead

With the blinds now up to 1,500/3,000 and no ante during heads-up play, Tyron Krost raised to 7,000 on the button. Tony Bloom defended with a call from the big blind and the flop came down {A-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{J-Clubs}. Both players checked.

The turn was the {3-Spades} and Bloom check-called a bet of 9,000 from Krost. The river then completed the board with the {7-Hearts} and Bloom check-called 26,000. Krost showed the {K-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} for two pair, jacks and sevens. Bloom mucked and Krost won the pot.
