David Howard

David Howard opened to 225,000 from under the gun and picked up calls from Pierre-Xavier Laurent in the small blind and Kevin Dubrocq in the big.

The flop was Kd7c6c, Laurent checked, Dubrocq checked, and Howard bet 425,000. Laurent called, Dubrocq folded, and the turn was Td. Laurent announced all in and Howard called at risk for 1,125,000.

Howard: KhQh
Laurent: Jc8c

Howard was ahead for the double with his paired king but needed to fade 12 outs on the river. The 2h river was safe and Howard doubled back into the game.

David Howard – 3,975,000 (40 bb)
Pierre-Xavier Laurent – 8,100,000 (81 bb)
