Re: ***OFFICIAL WSOP SWEAT THREAD***

Greg was always going to be a better chance coming back for Day 4. No slight on Greg at all, but I'd say Jackie lost it today. All out unrelentable aggression and he didn't really have any tough decisions.

Re: ***OFFICIAL WSOP SWEAT THREAD***

weird... he was Viktor in day 1 though

Blom Puts Wattel to the Test
Posted 12 hours 34 minutes ago by Chad_Holloway

Viktor Blom
Pot-Limit Omaha
We caught the action with 14,400 in the pot and a board reading . Viktor "Isildur1" Blom had just bet 12,000 from the hijack and received a call from Mike Wattel in the cutoff. When the appeared on the river, Blom announced a pot-sized bet of 38,400 while remaining still.
The dealer signaled for Blom to put out chips, which the Swede did. Wattel then hit the tank for a couple of minute, during which Blom did his best to impersonate a statue. He swayed a bit, but it didn't seem to make much difference to Wattel as he shook his head and sent his cards to the muck.
Chip Counts
Viktor Blom PokerStars Team Pro SE 181,000 16,000
Mike Wattel 113,000 -3,000

I can't find it on a quick 41~45 look.
I have selbst on my fantasy draft and people are talking about her, so that's of my interest.

Re: ***OFFICIAL WSOP SWEAT THREAD***

I admired Greg's play and aggression for the most part but that PF call with 62 for a quarter of his chips was simply awful. And then he binks it. No wonder Jackie went on tilt after that, I sure would've.

Re: ***OFFICIAL WSOP SWEAT THREAD***

after 7 months of making the 2nd best hand in cash games, Blom should own the hell out of razz.
