$1.5k NLHE – LeFrancois Proves Unbeatable
It seemed almost inevitable but French-Canadian Pascal LeFrancois has indeed won the latest $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em event at the 2010 WSOP.
Although the day began with Phil Hellmuth as one of the chip leaders, it was all LeFrancois as the tournament approached the final table.
Once he made it to the final table LeFrancois was never in any real danger of busting and he essentially ran everyone else over.
In the final hand of the tournament LeFrancois completed and Steinberg checked his option.
The flop came K♥ J♣ 4♣. Steinberg bet 140,000 and LeFrancois made the call.
The turn came 5♥ and Steinberg bet 360,000. LeFrancois called and that brought the river of T♦.
It didn't take long for Steinberg to move all-in. LeFrancois asked for a count and after thinking for a minute he decided to make the call.
Steinberg flipped up 4♥ 3♦ and LeFrancois jumped up from his seat cheering as he showed the winning J♠ 6♣.
LeFrancois defeats Steinberg and wins the 2010 WSOP Event 8 $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em event. He takes home a whopping $568,974 while Steinberg will have to settle for tidy consolation prize of $352,916.
