Becker & Bazeley Bust But Busquet Burgeoning

Boris Becker

We noticed that Boris Becker was no longer with us and headed over to Table 18 to find out what happened. According to Olivier Busquet, a player in late position opened with a raise only to have Becker move all in for approximately 7,500 with {J-Hearts}{10-Hearts}. His opponent called with the lowly {6-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and ended up taking the lead on the {3-}{K-}{8-} flop, which contained one heart. Becker picked up a flush draw on the {5-Hearts} turn, but missed it as the river blanked.

Meanwhile, Busquet ended up picking up a big pot to eliminate Jacob Bazeley while we were nearby. A preflop raising war resulted in all the chips getting into the pot with the latter being all in for right around 80,000 with {10-Hearts}{10-Spades}. He was racing against the {A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds} of Busquet, but not after the flop fell {A-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{K-Spades}. Busquet hit it hard by making two pair, and Bazeley was up out of his seat in preparation for a quick exit.

The {9-Hearts} turn brought him one step closer to the door, while the {8-Spades} river sent him out it. "Good luck, guys," Bazeley offered before taking his leave.
