Action was heads up with 500,000 in the middle and on the board when Jean-Noel Thorel check-called a 300,000 bet from Sam Greenwood. The turn was and Thorel checked again. Greenwood bet 800,000 and Thorel raised to 1,700,000. Greenwood thought a moment before he went all in and Thorel got away from it.
A few moments later, Thorel got his last 2,250,000 into the middle and Greenwood called.
The board ran out and Greenwood held on with deuces to eliminate Thorel in second place for $2,137,100.
