After an unbelievable heads-up match that saw Marc-Olivier Crête survive no less than 13 all-ins, Shawn Daigle was finally able to deliver the last blow.
There were 660K in play and in the end, the blinds were 15K/30K, which means that a turn or a river bet was 60K! About 20 minutes before the end, Marc-Olivier had 25K in front of him, 20 of which was placed as a big blind. That’s when the crawling started. He never really came back to even, he just could not lose an all-in… swinging from 25K to 100K 5 or 6 times, winning 13 all-ins in a row.
In the last hand – some started to believe there wasn’t going to be one – Shawn Daigle had , and Marc-Olivier had . When the flop came out, it seemed like that was it, but Shawn still thought Marc-Olivier would make runner-runner straight, or trips. The shook that away from him though, and he realized he managed to get out of this dream!
Shawn can now place his trophy besides the one he earned by winning the Big Ante Event!
