Carrel Wins From Thorel, Thorel Wins From Helppi

Webjoker • Level 15: 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante

Charlie Carrel was the one raising it up to 55,000 from the cutoff. Small blind Mustapha Kanit called and so did big blind Jean-Noel Thorel. Both blinds checked on {K-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{3-Spades} and Carrel bet 65,000. Kanit folded, Thorel called. Both then checked the {9-Diamonds} on the turn before the {3-Clubs} on the river had Thorel bet 75,000.

"Oooohhh!" Carrel exclaimed, "King? You have a king-face."

Thorel said nothing and Carrel eventually called. Thorel showed {7-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} and Carrel took it down with the {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}.

The next hand, Jean-Noel Thorel limped in from the small blind and Juha Helppi checked his big blind. Thorel check-called 25,000 on {6-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} before both checked the {A-Clubs} on the turn. The {2-Hearts} on the river had Thorel bet out an even 100,000. Helppi thought about it for some time before he called.

Thorel tabled {K-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} for bottom pair and Helppi just said "That's good," before sliding his cards into the muck.
