Baptiste Chavaillaz has been the most aggressive of the three remaining players all day, and that has not slowed down since we got to three handed.
Zhong Chen raised it up to 185,000 on the button, and Eric Varela called. Chavaillaz was in the big blind, and he put in a three bet to 300,000. Both players called, and the flop came down . When it was checked to Chavaillaz, he fired out 370,000, and both his opponents quickly folded.
After that pot, Chavaillaz is pushing nine million chips.
We have just lost Jared Ingles at the hands of Baptiste Chavaillaz.
Preflop action folded to Chavaillaz who raised to 170,000. Zhong Chen folded his small blind and action was on Ingles who made a reraise to 420,000. Chavaillaz made the call, and then it was off to the flop.
Action started on Ingles who made a bet of 280,000. After processing this, Chavaillaz put in a reraise to 800,000. It didn't take too long for Ingles to make the decision to move all in, and this sent Chavaillaz into the tank.
"Do you really have aces or kings?" he muttered to himself.
After a few minutes of thinking, he found a call, and it was the right call.
Chavaillaz picked off Ingles bluff with just top pair, and he couldn't have asked to see a better hand. Ingles was drawing dead to running outs.
The turn was the and that card put a lock on the hand for Chavaillaz. The river was just formality as Ingles hit the rail in 4th place for $73,270.
With that hand, Chavaillaz now has an overwhelming chip lead with 8,375,000 chips.
Zhong Chen started the action by raising to 160,000. Eric Varela and Baptiste Chavaillaz came along in the blinds, and the three of them went to a flop. Everyone checked on all three streets of a board, and Varela rolled over for ten high. Amazingly, ten high was good as both Chavaillaz and Chen mucked.
"What are you raising with?!" Chavaillaz asked Chen in a jovial manner. Varela took the small pot to up his stack to 2.2 million.
