Gordon in Huntly For an EPT Title

YorkshirePud • Level 17: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Gordon Huntly, our last remaining Scotsman, is flying high and is on course for a very deep run here in Deauville.

Huntly opened to 11,000 from the hijack and Joseph El Khoury called from the button. Jean Julien Stempffer, fresh from doubling through El Khoury minutes earlier, squeezed all-in for 150,500 in total. Huntly then re-shoved and El Khoury got out of the way.

Huntly: {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}
Stempffer: {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}

Huntly was narrowly in front with his pocket queens and that lead would soon be extended as the flop fell {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{j-Clubs}. The {2-Clubs} gave Stempffer some outs to a flush, but the {4-Spades} was not one of them and Huntly climbs up the chip counts.
