Di Lauro Double Through Abecassis

We caught the action on a {2-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} with quite some money already in the pot. Abecassis checked to Di Lauro who bet 23,000. After tanking for a bit Abecassis decided to make the call leaving Di Lauro with only 13,600 chips behind.

The turn was the {4-Clubs} and after Abecassis checked for the second time it was on to Di Lauro who pushed all-in. Abecassis shrugged and called but was not happy.

Michel Abecassis{K-}{J-}{8-}{6-}
Michele Di Lauro{A-Spades}{A-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{6-Hearts}

The river was the {4-Spades} and Abecassis's hand got mucked very quickly leaving us no time to write down his suits. The only thing we know is that they were all black. Di Lauro doubled up to 104,000 while Abecassis still holds his ground with 138,000.

On a board of {4-Diamonds} {2-Clubs} {9-Spades} {7-Clubs} David Benyamine is involved in a pot with Francis Dubois and he bets 11,000 and Dubois makes the call. The call leaves Dubois with 12,000 behind. The river is the {2-Spades} and Benyamine moves 20,000 into the middle and Dubois flashes {A-Clubs} {K-Clubs} before mucking his hand.

Then Erich Kollmann raised under the gun, Benyamine called in the small blind and Dubois moved all-in from the big blind for 12,00. Both Kollmann and Benyamine made the call and Dubois had the chance to triple up. Both players checked the {10-Clubs} {9-Hearts} {8-Spades} flop and then Benyamine bet the {7-Spades} turn and Kollmann folded his hand.

Benyamine{K-Clubs} {J-Spades} {9-Diamonds} {7-Spades}
Dubois{10-Diamonds} {9-Spades} {8-Clubs} {3-Diamonds}

Dubois needed one of his three-pairs to pair the board and the {3-Spades} was not one of them and he was eliminated.

Jelassi Ramzi

Steve Billirakis must be having the biggest swings on day two of this tournament. MrSmokey1, as he's know to the online poker community, just lost a huge pot against the unstoppable Ramzi Jelassi.

We caught the action on the turn when there was {Q-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{A-Hearts} on the table. Jelassi checked from the under the gun position giving the action to Billirakis who bet 12,500 from the button. The Swedish regular on the tournament circuit made the call.

The river was the {3-Spades} and the dealer confirmed the pot size was 58,600. Jelassi announced a 37,000 bet and once again the pressure was on Billirakis after being in many tough spots earlier today. After a while he folded and mucked when Jelassi showed him {A-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{5-Spades}{6-Spades} for a full house.

Billirakis is down to 86,000 while Jelassi is the runaway chip leader with 335,600 chips!
