Hand #272 - Maxime Villemure Eliminated in 3rd Place ($1,132,107)

Maxime Villemure - 3rd place
The button is with Denes Kalo in Seat 1.

Maxime Villemure completes from the small blind and Glen Chorny checks his option in the big blind.

The action checks through to the turn on a board of {10-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{J-Spades}, where Villemure check-calls the 200,000 bet from Chorny. The river lands the {9-Diamonds} and Villemure this time leads out with a 550,000 bet into the middle. Villemure is noticeably coughing during this hand. Chorny suddenly comes over the top all in and Villemure insta-calls.

Villemure: {Q-Hearts}{8-Hearts}
Chorny: {K-Clubs}{Q-Spades}

Both players show a straight but Chorny holds the nut straight, which sees an unfortunate Maxime Villemure sent home after a courageous five days of play in third place for a tidy payday of $1,132,107.
