$10,000 Main Event

Former Champ Keeps Hopes of a Second Title Alive

An early-position player opened for 1,550 and received a call from the button. A short-stacked Tony Bloom, who won this very event back in 2004, then moved all in from the small blind for 3,250 more. The original raiser isolated by moving all in over the top, the button folded, and the cards were turned on their backs.

Bloom: {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}
Opponent: {A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}

Bloom was in a dominating spot, and he only improved his lot as the board ran out an uneventful {8-Spades}{5-Hearts}{2-Spades}{6-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}.

Meanwhile, Norah Greer, who you may recall mixed it up earlier in the day with Antonio Esfandiari, has been eliminated from the tournament.
