The final hand of the tournament was a special one. Blom opened king-six off, and Plesuv called with queen-seven suited. Plesuv check-called a bet with second pair on queen-nine-king with two hearts and one diamons. The ace of diamonds on the turn gave Plesuv a flush draw, and he check-called a bet again. The river came the five of hearts, making for three hearts on the table. Plesuv, stuck with what was now third pair and a missed flush draw, shoved as a bluff. Blom considered all his options, shook his head, looked at the board again, counted his chips, tanked, and then decided to call with second-pair and no kicker.
