Bloom Rivers Two Pair

• Level 8: 6,000-12,000, 1,000 ante

From the button, Tony Bloom raised to 24,000. Sam Trickett three-bet from the big blind to 48,000, and Bloom made the call.

The flop produced the {A-Spades}{10-Clubs}{9-Spades}, and Trickett check-called a bet of 30,000 from Bloom.

The turn was the {4-Hearts}, and both players checked to see the {5-Hearts} land on the river. Trickett checked, and Bloom bet 78,000. Trickett tank-called, but couldn't beat the {A-Clubs}{5-Clubs} that Bloom held for a rivered two pair and mucked his hand.
