El Bakkouri Doubles Through Fletcher

KaleGozer • Nível 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Mohamed El Bakkouri opened with a raise on the button. Julio Sanchez folded his small blind, but Arron Fletcher in the big blind had a different plan. He slid a tower of T-100,000 chips forward, enough to cover El Bakkouri. The Frenchman snap-called the remainder of his stack off.

Arron Fletcher: {A-Spades}{3-Spades}
Mohamed El Bakkouri: {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}

The best hand stayed ahead from start to finish: {Q-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{8-Hearts}. El Bakkouri doubled up to 1,500,000.

Short-stack ninja Matthias Widmann, who laddered himself up quite nicely today, shoved all in with his last 195,000. Behind him, Fernandez made the call and the other players folded.

Fernandez: {A-Clubs}{Q-Spades}

No escape for Widmann on {10-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{6-Spades}{2-Clubs}{J-Hearts}, making him the eighth place finisher.

Ricardo Manquant shoved his stack of 240,000, just six big blinds, in the middle and Julio Sanchez called. Behind Sanchez, Arron Fletcher three-bet to 850,000 and Sanchez instantly let it go.

Manquant had decent equity to score the triple-up, but it wasn't meant to be. After a {J-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{3-Spades}{8-Spades}{K-Diamonds} board, the winner of the inaugural WSOP Circuit Main Event in Marrakech two years ago saw his bid at a second ring come to an end.

Receiving a thundrous ovation from the rail, the Frenchman headed to the payout desk to collect his winnings of 153,000 MAD (€14,290).
