The players seem content with passing the blinds and antes to each other. Even Olivier Busquet commented on how three-handed has not been very exciting so far. Hopefully that will change shortly,

Busquet Looming on Wrang's Shoulder

Olivier Busquet limped the button and Jannick Wrang called in the small blind before Fabrice Soulier made it 425,000 in the big blind but both players called.

The {A-Clubs}{J-Spades}{10-Spades} flop was checked around and Wrang led out for 550,000 on the {10-Clubs} turn. Soulier debated but elected to fold, Busquet though made a quick call to see the {7-Hearts} river.

Wrang then quickly checked and Busquet bet a cool million chips and the Dane quickly folded. Busquet is nearly at the same chip count as Wrang now, an incredible comeback from being the short stack at the start of this level.

Busquet And Wrang Continue To Clash

YorkshirePud • Level 30: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Olivier Busquet and Jannick Wrang have been taking each other on relentlessly since play turned three-handed and you get the feeling it won't be long before one of them takes the other out of the game.

The first had saw Busquet check-call a 250,000 continuation bet on a {3-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{K-Diamonds} flop, then they checked down the {6-Clubs} turn and {2-Spades} only for Busquet to win the pot with {K-Spades}{3-Spades}.

Immediately after Wrang opened to 225,000 and Busquet called in the big blind. The {10-Spades}{A-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} flop was checked by Busquet, bet to the tune of 250,000 from Wrang, and called by Busquet, The turn was the {7-Clubs} and both players checked. But when the river was the {10-Clubs} Busquet lead for 500,000 and that saw Wrang quickly fold.

Botond opted to call and the pot swelled to almost 2.4 million and the Hungarian only had about 2.3 million behind, Wrang now led out for 1.1 million on the {8-Clubs} turn and Botond tanked before moving all in and he was quickly called by the Dane.

Wrang: {K-Hearts}{4-Hearts}
Botond: {A-Hearts}{3-Clubs}

Busquet Finds Kings, Doubles Again!

YorkshirePud

Olivier Busquet is back in this tournament after doubling up yet again thanks to a cooler hand against Jannick Wrang.

Balazs Botond opened under the gun to 210,000 and next to act was Busquet who re-popped it to 450,000 which set alarm bells ringing because the hand previously he shoved all in over Botond's open. Anyway, after Busquet three-bet Wrang stuck in a four-bet to 850,000 and when Fabrice Soulier and Botond folded Busquet moved all in and Wrang called!

Busquet: {K-Diamonds}{K-Spades}
Wrang: {A-Spades}{K-Clubs}

A real cooler of a hand four-handed I'm sure you'll agree. The first three community cards were {6-Spades}{10-Clubs}{7-Clubs} keeping the kings in front but the turn was the {3-Clubs} gifting a flush draw to Wrang but he was still a 3:1 underdog. The dealer burned a card and placed the {4-Spades} on the river, which caused quite a stir because many initially thought it was a club but alas it was not and Busquet's comeback is almost complete. Can he take the chip lead now?

Busquet Doubles Up Again

Straight off the bat, Balazs Botond moved all in from the small blind and Olivier Busquet called all in for less.

Botond: {A-Spades}{2-Clubs}
Busquet: {K-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}

The flop was {A-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{5-Hearts} and Botond made a pair but it was still basically a flip as Busquet flopped the nut flush draw and a gutshot, Botond sighed as if to say, "It's never easy, is it?"

The {2-Hearts} came on the turn to give Busquet the flush but now he faced a sweat as Botond improved to two pair, the {3-Clubs} came on the river and Busquet survived to fight another day.
