Two World Series of Poker heavy weights just clashed in a big pot which gave one a double up, and the other something to complain about.

Daniel Idema is known for his amazing Limit Hold'em skills as he finished first and second in the $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship in back to back years. French pro Bruno Fitoussi claimed his fame when he finished second in the 2007 $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship to Freddy Deeb.

High stakes online pro Ben Tollerene raised under the gun to 3,000 after which Fitoussi, who was under the gun +1, three bet to 4,500. Action got folded to Idema, who was in the cutoff, and he made it 4,500. Both Tollerene and Fitoussi called giving us three-way action on the flop.

The flop came down {2-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{2-Spades} and Tollerene checked to Fitoussi who fired out 1,500. Idema raised, Tollerene folded and it was back on Fitoussi. He made it 4,500 after which he had only 1,100 left behind.

"Alright, let's party," Idema said after verifying Fitoussi's stack, and the remaining chips went into the pot.

Bruno Fitoussi{8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}

The turn brought the {3-Clubs} and the river the {q-Spades} giving Fitoussi more than a double up.

"One day I'll get there with ace-king," Idema sighed. He was knocked down to 46,000 while Fitoussi got his stack back up to 32,000. Interestingly enough Fitoussi's opponent in the $50,000 H.O.R.S.E., Freddy Deeb, is also still in contention in this event!
