Bloom Falls Short of "Golden Ticket"

Tony Bloom raised all in from the button and Tyron Krost made the call from the big blind, once again creating an all-in situation during heads-up play with the chance to win the event and the "golden ticket."

Krost tabled the {A-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} for two overcards to Bloom's {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}.

The flop came down {K-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} and the nines for Bloom held up. After the {8-Clubs} landed on the turn, some outs were taken away from Krost as he could no longer hit the {A-Clubs} or {J-Clubs} because Bloom would make a flush.

The river completed the board with the {A-Hearts} and found one of the outs Krost was looking for. He spiked his non-club ace to win the pot and take down the event, earning the "golden ticket" which awards entry to the Aussie Millions Main Event for an entire lifetime.
