David Halimi was all in from the button for 8,200 with As9s, and he needed to improve to stay alive against Thomas Boyden’s 8s8c in the big blind.

The board came AdKc2d6h3s, and Halimi paired his ace on the flop to win the pot and double up in chips.

The next hand, Halimi got it all in again, under the gun for 17,300 with AhAd. Halimi was up against the big blind, who had JxJx.

The board came KhKsQs9s9h, and Halimi won the pot with his aces to double up again.

David Halimi  –  35,500  (59 bb)

The next hand, Thomas Boyden raised from the button to 1,200, the small blind called, and Halimi reraised from the big blind to 3,800. Boyden called, and the small blind folded.

The flop came 10s8h6h, Halimi bet 2,600, and Boyden called.

The turn card paired the board with the 6d, Halimi checked, Boyden bet 4,500, and Halimi thought for a while before check-raising to 12,000. Boyden thought for a while before he folded, and Halimi took the pot.
