Jean-Noel Thorel opted to re-enter after the dinnerbreak and woke up with a monster right away. Patrick Leonard opened to 1,800 from early position and Philipp Gruissem called from the cutoff. Davidi Kitai three-bet to 7,200 from the small blind, which brought the action to Jean-Noel Thorel in the big blind.
It was the perfect timing to pick up , and the Frenchman cut out a four-bet to 15,800. Leonard thought for a while before folding, Gruissem and Kitai both snap-mucked their holdings. With a big grin, Thorel flashed his aces and raked in some chips.
