Tough Split for Mitchell

James Mitchell

A pretty big pot ended up being chopped by James Mitchell and Thomas Bichon (just shy of 200k) but Mitchell looked a tad disappointed at the way the river rolled...

It started with a preflop raise to 7,500 from Nicolas Levi under the gun, called by James Mitchell and Thomas Bichon, and the big blind Rob Akery. Only Mitchell (the bettor - 14,500) and button Bichon survived the {6-Diamonds} {J-Spades} {7-Diamonds} flop, however.

The turn brought the {J-Hearts} and a check from Mitchell. A long pause from Bichon, who finally brought out and bet 26,000. Mitchell called without much hesitation his end. On the {6-Spades} river, Mitchell check-called another bet, of 55k, and showed down the same full house with his {A-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds} as Bichon had caught on the river with his {K-Clubs} {J-Clubs}, which could have been in a world of difficulty in other circumstances.
