With 52,000 in the pot and a flop of , Russia Victor Sheerman checked from the big blind and France's Romain Chauvassagne bet 20,000 from the button. Sheerman responded by moving all in for 129,000 and Chauvassagne thought long and hard before making a seemingly reluctant call.
Sheerman got it in good with top pair, which was ahead of Chauvassagne's middle pair. The turn actually improved Sheerman to two pair, and he seemed confident in his position.
"Yes," Chauvassagne exclaimed when the spiked on the river. Sheerman was not fazed and quickly pointed out that he was good as he held two pair with jacks and nines. Chauvassagne pointed out that he had made trip eights, and it took Sheerman a moment before the realization set in.
Once it registered, he shook his head, vented a bit, and then headed to the payout desk in 52nd place.
