Event 6: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Mixed-Max

Match 2: Lemaire Fighting Back

There's no quit in Hugo Lemaire.

Joseph Cheong had the button and opened to 18,000. Hugo Lemaire three-bet to 54,000, and Cheong called. The flop fell, {3-Spades}{6-Clubs}{a-Spades}, and Lemaire led for 55,000. Cheong snap-mucked.

The next hand, Hugo Lemaire had the button and opened. Joseph Cheong called. Both players checked the {8-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} flop, and the {10-Spades} turned. Cheong check-called 25,000.

The {a-Spades} completed the board, and both players checked. Cheong announced that he had king-high, but Lemaire showed {8-Hearts}{5-Clubs} for a pair of eights.

Lemaire is gaining some momentum, and is now back up to 600,000 chips.
