Jean-Noel Thorel opened the betting action with a raise to 30,000 and Igor Kurganov three-bet to 100,000. Joao Vieira bumped it up even more when he four-bet to 315,000.
It was a bit too much for Thorel who already rebought once and the Frenchman folded. Kurganov took his time to think about it before sliding a big stack of 100,000 chips to the middle. Vieira folded and Kurganov took the pot down with a five-bet.
