Bleg Busts to Thorel

poolshir • Level 20: 100,000-200,000, 200,000 ante

Jun Wah Yap raised to 450,000 and Timothy Adams three-bet to 1,000,000 from one seat over. Jean-Noel Thorel in the big blind squeezed to 2,500,000 with 3,800,000 behind and that forced out Yap. Adams was having none of it and moved all in, Thorel reluctantly folded.

Exactly one hand later, Michael Bleg moved all in for what appeared to be 1,500,000. Thorel in the small blind moved all in over the top to isolate successfully and set up the following showdown.

Michael Bleg: {J-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}
Jean-Noel Thorel: {7-Spades}{7-Clubs}

Bleg flopped the world on {Q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{6-Clubs}, but the {A-Diamonds} turn and {3-Clubs} river were both blanks to reduce the field to the final 21. Once the tables are balanced, the action will continue hand-for-hand on the money bubble.
