Thorel Hits Miracle River to Double Through Mikolaitis
Level 24 : Blinds 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante
Jean-Noel Thorel open-jammed a stack of 910,000 on the button and Dominykas Mikolaitis re-shoved from the small blind to get things heads-up.
Thorel stood from his seat as the flop came to pair Mikolaitis' king, though the turn gave him additional hope with a gutshot. The river wasn't a nine, but it was the to give Thorel a set and Mikolaiti gave a defeated sigh after doubling the Frenchman.
"Oooh! Pop-pop-pop-ohhh!" celebrated Thorel.
