Thorel Hits Magic Flop to Bust Vogelsang and Leave Brewer Short
Jean-Noel Thorel raised to 50,000 from under the gun and Christoph Vogelsang as the shortest stack moved all-in.
"Can I get a count?" Chris Brewer in the cutoff inquired. Once it was deemed to be for 298,000, Brewer used one time bank extension before announcing a reraise to 540,000. It folded around to Thorel, who pushed all-in for little more than that and Brewer quickly called.
The flop gave Thorel kings and queens, and he retained the lead throughout the turn as well as the river.
"Hehe ... I win?!" Thorel asked the dealer and then giggled when it was confirmed.
In the meantime, Vogelsang said his goodbyes while a visibly upset Brewer sighed loudly and bemoaned his lack of fortune. He later apologised in table chat for his outbreak after he paid off the double to Thorel for 681,000, becoming the joint short stack in the process.
