Tony Bloom makes Poker Million IX final tableTony Bloom is the third player through to the Poker Million IX final table in December, joining Howard Lederer and Barny Boatman.

Bloom came from behind against eight-time World Series bracelet winner Erik Seidel to make his third Poker Million final table having appeared in the first two at the beginning of the noughties.

“It was a real quality field and Erik is a world class act so I’m delighted,” he said after his dramatic victory in a star-studded qualifier.

“I hope its third time lucky though – it’s bound to be a tough heat because of the quality players in the line up but I hope to do well and I don’t think it can be as strong as this field though.”

The full result of heat three was:

1: Tony Bloom
2: Erik Seidel
3: Annette Obrestad
4: Steven Merrifield
5: Dave “Devilfish” Ulliot
6: Roberto Romanello
7: Tony G
8: Mike Matusow

The Poker Million IX begins broadcast on SKY Sports on September 7 and 14 with the first heat showing as two, one-hour shows.
