[user101598] • Level 28: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Can Pierre Neuville retain the lead?

Hand #85: Kevin Eyster raised to 100,000 in first position, winning the blinds and antes.

Hand #86: Andrew Lichtenberger raised to 105,000 on the button, and took down the pot preflop.

Hand #87: Pierre Neuville raised to 110,000 on the button, and he too won without seeing a flop.

Hand #88: Lichtenberger received a walk.

Hand #89: Neuville walked it out like Unk.

Hand #90: Lichtenberger raised to 110,000 on the button, and no one wanted to play ball.

Hand #91: Lichtenberger was first to act, and raised to 115,000. Neuville called on the button, and the two players in the blinds folded. The flop came down {9-Hearts}{q-Spades}{j-Hearts}, both players checked, and the turn was the {5-Spades}. Lichtenberger led out for 185,000, Neuville called, and the river was the {3-Clubs}.

Both players checked, and Lichtenberger showed {k-Spades}{4-Spades} for king-high. Neuville revealed {10-Clubs}{9-Clubs} for a pair of nines, and he is now the chip leader.
