Pierre Neuville doubles & blows a kiss to the dealer

Hand #13: Andrew Lichtenberger raised to 62,000 in the hijack seat, winning the blinds and antes.

Hand #14: Pierre Neuville raised to 75,000 in the cutoff, and he received no action.

Hand #15: Jeremy Kottler raised to 60,000 on the button, and both players in the blinds folded.

Hand #16: Neuville raised to 65,000 from under the gun, Kevin Eyster three-bet to 160,000 on his direct left, and the action folded back to the Belgian. He tank-folded.

Hand #17: Andrew Lichtenberger raised to 65,000 on the button, Neuville moved all in for 515,000, and Lichtenberger called.

Neuville: {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}
Lichtenberger: {7-Spades}{7-Clubs}

The flop was all eights - {8-Clubs}{8-Spades}{8-Hearts} - and Lichtenberger remained in the lead. The {k-Diamonds} on the turn missed Neuville as well, but the {q-Spades} spiked on the river to give the Belgian the winning hand.

Neuville doubled to 1.075 million chips, and Lichtenberger slipped to 675,000.
