Jaered Besse has just doubled through Samuel Ferland-Picard to move his stack back over the current chip average and position himself for a deep run. We arrived at the table with both hands exposed waiting for the board cards to be dealt.
The flop was laid out with the Trey having been exposed first, then the Ace, then the Queen – so what was a promising start to the flop was a disaster for Samuel by the time the door card was exposed. The turn and river changed nothing, and Jaered’s stack was counted down to 180K that Samuel promptly paid off.
The tournament is down to 25 players and table 32 was just removed from service in the tournament as it was brought to 3 tables. There will be full redraws at 18 players and 10 player remaining – in other words, with 2 tables left and before the final table.
