Mehdi El Tabirou had been nursing a short stack for a while, and I’d already spent a while hovering around his table as he contemplated pushing from the big blind over a 12k raise from Hans Christian Fjaervoll on the button. El Tabirou ultimately folded that time though, and play continued.
Just a few minutes later, and I was back at their table. The showdown was already in progress when I arrived; moments later El Tabirou was gone.
El Tabirou: Ad-8h
Fjaervoll is now up to 330k and vying for the chip lead.
