Larquemin Crippled; then Doubles and Triples

• Nível 6: 250-500, 75 ante

First, Christophe Larquemin doubled up Ben Heath. The Brit was all in for 11,900 and the board ran out {10-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{8-Spades}. Heath tabled {10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} for two pair. Larquemin had {8-}{J-} and was left with only 2,500 chips.

Two hands later, he moved all in from the button for 2,100. From the big blind Karzan Hamarash made the call and Larquemin was in big trouble.

His {10-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} was way behind the {10-Spades}{10-Clubs} of his opponent. The {9-Spades}{5-Hearts}{Q-Spades} at least gave him some outs. The {3-Clubs} turn wasn't the help he wanted but the {9-Diamonds} fell on the river and gave him the lucky double up.

A couple of hands later, Ben Heath raised to 1,300 and Larquemin maid the call with 3,600 behind. Hamarash called as did Thomas Mjeldheim and Pratyush Buddiga.

All checked the {3-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{K-Clubs} flop. The turn was the {6-Hearts} and Heath slid out a bet of 850. Larquemin moved all in and Hamarash called. Mjeldheim and Buddiga folded but Heath made the call as well.

The two active players checked the {K-Diamonds} that fell on the river. Larquemin stood up and had his cigarettes in his hand but had to sit down after he tabled his {A-Hearts}{8-Spades}.

To his own surprise, he won the hand against Heath's {7-Clubs}{7-Hearts} and Hamarash's {5-Diamonds}{4-Spades}.
