Guigon Will Not Go Quietly

Nível 19 : 4,000/8,000, 1,000 ante
Bernard Guigon
Bernard Guigon

Bernard Guigon has just found another crucial double up, this one pulling his chip stack out of the basement.

It began with Tarcisio Bruno making a big preflop raise to 55,000, and Guigon three-bet shoved for 112,000 total. The call came quickly, and the two men were flipping for the pot. It was Bruno's {7-Hearts} {7-Clubs} a slight favorite, but Guignon appeared eternally confident in his {A-Clubs} {K-Diamonds}.

The {6-Hearts} {J-Spades} {10-Diamonds} flop was essentially a miss, but it did give Guignon another four outs to try and hit the gutshot. The turn {4-Hearts} was a brick, but the river came through in a big way. That marginal flop turned out to be rather important as the {Q-Diamonds} river gave Guigon Broadway and the big double. He's up to 242,000 now.

Chop Between Hinrichsen and Baudry

Nível 19 : 4,000/8,000, 1,000 ante

From the button, Eric Baudry raised to 17,000. Andrew Hinrichsen called out of the small blind and play went heads up to the flop.

The {Q-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{2-Spades} fell and both players checked to see the {10-Diamonds} land on the turn. Hinrichsen bet 18,000 and Baudry called.

The turn was the {K-Diamonds} and Baudry bet 25,000 after Hinrichsen checked. Hinrichsen called.

Both players tabled a variation of {K-}{10-} and the two chopped up the pot.

Hinrichsen Hears a Who

Nível 19 : 4,000/8,000, 1,000 ante

Andrew Hinrichsen is turning up the heat here as the table begins to thin out.

He's opened the last two pots to 17,000, and he found some action on the second one. It was Gianluca Speranza who three-bet him up to 38,000, but Hinrichsen was unconvinced. He made a solid four-bet to 95,000 straight, and Speranza tanked and folded.

Just now while we type, Hinrichsen has dragged the third consecutive pot, stealing the blinds and antes yet again. He's up to about 450,000 now, give or take.

John Eames Eliminated in 7th Place (€22,449)

Action folded to Tarcisio Bruno on the button. He opened with a raise to 35,000, nearly four and a half big blinds. Play then moved over to John Eames in the big blind and he moved all in for around 120,000. Bruno called.

Bruno had Eames in bad shape with the {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs} to Eames' {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}. After the board ran out {K-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}, Eames headed to the rail in seventh place.

Nabil Nedjai Eliminated in 8th Place (€17,608)

From the hijack seat, Eric Baudry raised to 17,000. Nabil Nedjai reraised all in from the button for 84,000. Action folded back to Baudry and he made the call. Showdown please.

Nedjai tabled the {K-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}, but was dominated against the {K-Hearts}{Q-Spades} for Baudry.

The flop came down {10-Spades}{5-Spades}{4-Hearts} and Baudry stayed in front. The turn was the {8-Diamonds} and the river the {A-Spades}. Nedjai's dominated king-deuce couldn't come from behind and he was eliminated in eighth place.

After the hand was over, Nedjai mentioned to another blogger here at the World Series of Poker Europe that he didn't see the original raise from Baudry and was attempted to steal the blinds with his shove; a mistake that cost him his tournament.

Now That's a Reraise

Nível 19 : 4,000/8,000, 1,000 ante

From the cutoff seat, our chip leader raised it up to 16,000, but it would not get through. In the small blind, Tarcisio Bruno grabbed reraising chips, and he made it 120,000 straight. Gianluca Speranza spent about 30 seconds giving it a cursory think-over, but he eventually passed and let his opponent have it.

Bruno flashed pocket eights as the dealer pushed him the pot.

Baudry Moves Up

Nível 19 : 4,000/8,000, 1,000 ante

On a {J-Spades} {7-Spades} {4-Hearts} flop, we picked up the action as Gianluca Speranza put out the first bet of 16,500. He was heads up with Eric Baudry, and Baudry stuck in a raise to 51,000 straight. Speranza matched it, and the two men would check through the {A-Diamonds} turn.

On the river {6-Clubs}, both men put another 64,000 chips into the pot, and it was two pocket pairs shown down. Unfortunately for Speranza and his {8-Spades} {8-Clubs}, Baudry's {Q-Clubs} {Q-Hearts} was better, earning him the pot and a chip boost to somewhere around 390,000.
