Antoine Saout Eliminated in 3rd Position (A$383,040)

Webjoker • Level 23: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Antoine Saout

Antoine Saout raised to 100,000 from the button and was soon facing a three-bet to 325,000 from small blind James Chen. Brandon Adams folded his big blind and action was back on Saout. The Frenchman shoved for exactly 1.2 million and Chen immediately asked for a count.

As the tournament director counted out Saout's stack, Chen repeatedly said: "I'm probably going to call."

In the end, Chen did call and it turned out to he was the heavy favorite.

James Chen: {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}
Antoine Saout: {A-Hearts}{9-Spades}

The {3-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} flop gave Saout some chop outs on top of his live nine, but the {K-Spades} on the turn and {J-Diamonds} on the river weren't cards he was hoping for.

After having finished third in the WSOP Main Event back in 2009 for $3,479,670, now third in the $25,000 Challenge at the 2017 Aussie Millions for A$383,040.
