Event #46: $50,000 Poker Players' Championship

Bloch Hits the Tank and Emerges with a Shove

• Taso 11

No-Limit Hold'em

Elior "Crazy Elior" Zion opened for 7,500 from the hijack and was met by a three-bet to 20,000 from Andy Bloch in the small blind. Sion responded with a four-bet to 45,000 and Bloch thought for a few moments before making the call.

The {9-Spades}{8-Clubs}{5-Hearts} flop saw Bloch check and then hit the tank hard after Sion bet a modest 40,000. Bloch spent over five minutes in the tank before Chun Lei Zhou called the clock, and then he took another 45 seconds before announcing that he was all in. Sion snap-folded.

"A ten-minute all in," Eli Elezra ribbed Bloch.
