Event 23: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em - Six-Handed

Double Up for ElkY

Artem Metalidi started out the action by making it 32,000 preflop. Bertrand Grospellier was next to act on the button and he moved all in for 212,000. Andrew Lichtenberger folded the small blind and Simon Charette called from the big blind. Metalidi folded and thanked Charette for making the call so he didn't have to.

Grospellier: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}
Charette: {A-Hearts}{10-Spades}

Grospellier held a strong advantage going to the flop, and a {3-Spades}{9-Spades}{j-Clubs} flop furthered it. A {Q-Spades} on the turn looked to be a great card for ElkY, but it also gave Charette an open-ended straight draw. A {6-Hearts} on the river allowed Grospellier to breathe easy as he had secured a double up.
