Julien Martini raised to 1,300,000 from under the gun and everyone folded to Jean-René Fontaine in the big blind. In one fell swoop, Fontaine picked up all his blue T-500,000 chips and flung them in the middle for a bet worth 5,900,000, and Martini called.
The flop was and Fontaine snap-checked. Martini didn't waste too much time before checking behind.
On the turn, Fontaine acted instantly again and took one of his three stacks of black T-100,000 chips, which he put into the pot with a loud thud. It was 2,300,000 total, which Martini called within ten seconds.
The river was the and Fontaine instantly checked this time. Martini took around ten to fifteen seconds before announcing all in. It was around 5 million to call for Fontaine, who sat back in his chair. Then, after about twenty seconds, he picked up one of his stacks of black and put it in the middle.
