Maxime Cavenet will be very happy they have just ironed out a deal – given he just took a whopper of a beat.
Holding [Qh][Qd] – he called Ostergaard’s huge jam with [Ah][Qc] and looked set to dish out an elimination until the flop came [Ac Js 6h] to bail the Dane out.
A [9c] and [Kc] completed the board and Ostergaard fist-pumped joyfully as the 42M pot was shipped to him. He’s in prime position to take down the tournament now.
Canevet meanwhile shook his head and got some sympathy from his rail – his stack crushed down to 15M or so. Have the wheels fallen off for our erstwhile chipleader?
