Dominik Nitsche limped with the {Q-Hearts}{J-Spades} and so did Pascal Lefrancois with {A-Clubs}{4-Clubs}, Adam Owen checked his option with {8-Spades}{3-Hearts}. On the {Q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{9-Spades} flop, it was Nitsche that bet 8 million and just Lefrancois called and headed to the {7-Hearts} turn.

Lefrancois checked, Nitsche bet 22 million with 50 million behind and Lefrancois called, spiking the {A-Hearts} on the river. Nitsche checked behind and was left in dire shape.

Soon after, Nitsche was all in for 45.5 million out of the small blind and initial raiser Stephen Chidwick called on the button.

Dominik Nitsche: {A-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}
Stephen Chidwick: {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}

Nitsche flopped a gutshot and turned a straight on the {10-Hearts}{5-Spades}{2-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{A-Spades} board to double.

Lefrancois is Crushing Nitsche

zedmaster84 • Level 39: 3,500,000-7,000,000, 7,000,000 ante

Pascal Lefrancois raised to 15 millino with the {A-Spades}{A-Clubs} first to act and Dominik Nitsche came along from the big blind with {Q-Spades}{9-Clubs}. The flop came {K-Hearts}{10-Spades}{10-Clubs} and Nitsche checked before check-raising from 10 million to 25 million.

Lefrancois called to see the {6-Spades} turn and Nitsche gave up the pot by check-folding to a bet of the Canadian.

In the next hand Nitsche limped the {Q-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} from the small blind and Lefrancois raised it up to 22 million with {K-Hearts}{10-Hearts} out of the big blind, Nitsche called. A flop of {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts}{8-Hearts} emerged, Nitsche checked and faced a bet of 15 million, the German decided to check-raise to 35 million with Lefrancois tossing in the call.

The {9-Diamonds} turn went check, check, and so was the {6-Clubs} on the river, Nitsche had to forfeit a decent portion of his stack.

Adam Owen opened to 19 million with the {K-Diamonds}{8-Spades} and was called by Pascal Lefrancois in the big blind with {7-Hearts}{6-Clubs}. The Canadian check-called a bet of 20,000 by Owen on the {Q-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} flop and improved to trips on the {7-Clubs} turn.

Lefrancois Pounds on Nitsche

zedmaster84 • Level 39: 3,500,000-7,000,000, 7,000,000 ante

Dominik Nitsche limped in with the {3-Clubs}{3-Spades} and Pascal Lefrancois raised to 25 million with {K-Clubs}{2-Spades} in a battle of the blinds. The flop came {Q-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{8-Hearts} and both players opted to check. Nitsche also checked the {7-Diamonds} turn and the {2-Hearts} river with Lefrancois checking back twice.

Soon after the duo clashed again when Lefrancois opened with the {K-Spades}{2-Spades} and Nitsche defended {4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} in the big blind. On the {5-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} flop, Nitsche checked and called a bet of 10 million. The {A-Clubs} turn gave Nitsche a gutshot on top of his pair and he check-called a bet of 40,000.

Nitsche checked and Lefrancois took an extra time bank extension right away before betting 180 million, shutting down all further action.
