Maxime Canevet doubles and is back in the game!
There’s still €73k on the line. The deal that was made 5-handed left €73k on the table – €50k for the winner and €23k for 2nd place.
So you knew it wasn’t just going to be a friendly French surrender match.
With only 16 big blinds Canevet’s game plan was easy – just find a hand and go with it.
Well, he found a hand: J♥ 9♣ in the big blind.
Stropoli moved all-in from the button (as he has done repeatedly) with K♦ 5♥ and Canevet called.
Board: J♣ A♦ 9♦ 9♠ 4♠.
Canevet made a boat and doubled up.
