Bloom's Getting The Best of Trickett

• Level 2: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

A long night lies ahead, but so far Tony Bloom is getting the best of Sam Trickett. Bloom is enjoying a massage while he just raised Trickett on a {8-Spades}{4-Spades}{7-Spades} flop. Trickett had put out a bet worth 8,500 and Bloom raised it up to 28,500. That was enough to take it down.

On the next hand Bloom raised from the button to 5,300 and Trickett called from the small blind. The flop came down {Q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} and Trickett check-called 7,200.

The turn brought out the {5-Clubs} and this time Trickett check-called 15,100. On the river the {K-Hearts} appeared and both players checked. Bloom showed {K-Spades}{7-Spades} for two pair and raked in the pot.
