Castaignon Continues to Chip Up

Shamus • Level 32: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante

After Remi Castaignon won that 5 million-plus chip pot off of Walid Bou Habib, the pair took turns raising buttons and claiming blinds and antes for a few hands.

Then a hand developed in which Bou Habib raised to 325,000 from the button, then Castaignon interrupted the pattern with a three-bet to 900,000 and after a short pause Bou Habib folded.

After that came another hand in which Castaignon raised and Bou Habib called to create a pot of 690,000. Both checked the {Q-Clubs}{J-Spades}{2-Spades} flop, then Bou Habib checked-called bets of 525,000 by Castaignon on both the {2-Clubs} turn and {5-Clubs} river.

Castaignon then showed {J-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} for jacks and deuces, and Bou Habib mucked.
