Cyril Andre raised to 120,000 preflop from early position and was called by Glen Cymbaluk and Remi Castaignon in the blinds. The flop was and it was checked to the raiser Andre, who bet 125,000.
Cymbaluk folded but Castaignon put in a small check-raise to 275,000 which Andre opted to call. If the latter thought this would slow Castaignon down, he would be mistaken, Castaignon came out firing to the tune of 500,000 - an amount worth almost half of Andre's remaining chips.
The high-stakes PLO specialist tanked for several minutes before making the call to see the on the river. Now Castaignon thought for about 30 seconds before moving all. Andre's face fell slightly and he mucked leaving himself perilously close to elimination.
