Blom Puts Wattel to the Test

Viktor Blom

Pot-Limit Omaha

We caught the action with 14,400 in the pot and a board reading {8-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{6-Clubs}. Viktor "Isildur1" Blom had just bet 12,000 from the hijack and received a call from Mike Wattel in the cutoff. When the {7-Clubs} 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.
