On the last hand before the break, Victor Taieb opened to 225,000 and Joe Goodman called on the button. Pierre-Xavier Laurent raised to 675,000 from the small blind and only Goodman came along.

“I have to at least see a flop,” he told the table.

Both players checked down the QsQh4hKc6d board and Laurent bet 1,225,000.

“I can’t believe I have to pay him off again,” Goodman said.

He called, Laurent showed KdTd and Goodman quickly tabled KhJh for the same two pair but a better kicker.

Joe Goodman – 7,325,000 (98 bb)
Pierre-Xavier Laurent – 8,725,000 (116 bb)
