Varkonyi Takes Lachance and Loses

Shamus

With the board showing {7-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}, Ludovic Lachance got all of his chips in the middle versus Robert Varkonyi, creating a huge 260,000-chip pot.

Lachance held {A-Clubs}{4-Clubs} for the ace-high flush, while Varkonyi tabled {10-Hearts}{9-Clubs}. Varkonyi had flopped a straight, and after the turn had a straight flush draw as well.

But the river blanked, and Varkyoni slips to 170,000. Meanwhile, Lachance chips up past the quarter-million mark.
