Blom Smashes One-Outer Against Cassidy
Posted 5 minutes ago by donpeters


As if we thought we'd get through the night without anyting crazy happening...

"Oh my god! Oh my god!" said Joe Cassidy over and over after springing from his chair, with his hands clenched tight to his head as if he was holding his baseball cap on for dear life in a windstorm.

Viktor Blom also shot out of his chair, but was on the complete opposite side of the spectrum. He was all smiles and gitty. He walked over to the table next to his, reached across between Phil Hellmuth and David Oppenheim to Luke Schwartz on the other side of the table, gave him a big high five.

When Blom smacked Schwartz's hand, he said, "One-outer, baby!" Schwartz smiled and congratulated him.

Cassidy was still pacing back and forth with his hands on his head and here's what happened.

Pot-Limit Omaha

Cassidy and Blom were in action on the T 9 5 flop and Cassidy was first to act. He checked and his Swedish counterpart fired a bet of 38,000. Cassidy raised and made it 138,000 to go. Blom called.

The A hit the turn and Cassidy potted it for 485,000. Blom called and was all in. Blom held the A 9 9 2 for a set of nines. Cassidy held the A Q 10 10 for a set of tens.

The river nailed the 9 and gave Blom a miracle one-outer. He sprung from his chair in shock and excitement. Cassidy sprung from his chair in the opposite manner, but just as shocked.

With that pot, Blom moved up over one million in chips while Cassidy was crushed down to just about 50,000 in chips.

Good to see Isildur has a bit of a personality.

In before racist ban for eyeball JPEG

Also the Blom JPEG woke me up. Thank you sir. Made me chuckle.

Gutted about Hellmuth. Hellmuth, Ivey, Blom final table would have been sick, no chance it can happen now.

Also finally, Luke Schwartz is a moron. Remember the PPPL Mixed, where he just non stop didn't shut up, like no one had played poker before him. Seems he's acting that way today. Just a complete idiot.

WTF ? I woke up seeing Blom in the chiplead of the 8 game 50k ?
Was it pure luck ?
He just learned those games right now or did he play 'em before ?

He only knew how to play NLHE and PLO. He learned O8 playing 200$/400$ for the first time few days ago ... And Kidpoker taught him the rules ( he didn't even knew that in Stud the 7th street was dealt face down ... )

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

thank you guys, I just saw it via the pokernews coverage.

The one outer is sick but any idea if he plays good in stud, stud 8, razz etc... ? No way he was up like 600k without knowing anything. Or maybe....

I just remember Elky won a bracelet last year (in stud ?) learning the game just like 1 hour before game started.

Sick kid
