Bruno Fitoussi

Joey Couden limped in from the button and called when Bruno Fitoussi made it 400,000 out of the small blind.

The rest of their chips went in on the {10-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{3-Spades} flop where Fitoussi potted for 900,000 and Couden shoved all in for effectively 255,000 more. Fitoussi called and found himself behind.

Bruno Fitoussi: {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}
Joey Couden: {K-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{9-Clubs}

Couden flopped top two pair but the {3-Diamonds} turn brought a superior two pair for Fitoussi whose aces held up on the {2-Spades} river. Couden sent 1.55 million Fitoussi's way and the French two-time WSOP runner-up took over the chip lead.
