Guillaume Diaz doubled up through David Peters when they got all in preflop with Diaz’s pocket eights against Peters’ Ts7s in a battle of the blinds.

Just a couple hands later, there was about 160,000 in the pot on the turn with the board reading Td4s3h7s.

Peters checked from the big blind and Diaz bet 135,000 on the button. Peters called and the Kc came on the river.

Peters checked and Diaz bet 240,000. Peters folded and Diaz took the pot. Peters mucked his hand and Diaz moved into the chip lead.

Guillaume Diaz – 790,000
David Peters – 625,000
