Level 17: 5,000/10,000 (10,000)
Antoine Talvard began the day with 135,000 in chips and now is sitting on close to 1.2 million. That is quite the start!
Talvard mentioned that fireworks erupted against a player. Peter de Bruin, who began the day as the chip leader, raised his hand and said: "That's me."
Talvard shared that he was involved in a 3-bet pot when he check-raised a flop containing both a jack and a ten. He opened-jammed a blank turn and there was about 1 million in the pot after de Bruin called.
De Bruin had the best preflop hand with pocket aces but was far behind Talvard's two pair with jack-ten. A blank river completed the board and if Talvard isn't the chip leader at the moment, he is very close.
Antoine Talvard - 1.2 million
Peter de Bruin - 200,000
