Here Comes the Bou-m

Homer • Level 31: 60,000-120,000, 20,000 ante

Walid Bou Habib opened to 250,000 from the button and then Remi Castaignon reraised to 600,000 from the small blind. The commentators have been mentioning how re-raised pots get big much quicker than usual due to the French rule which doubles the bet rather than the raise.

At this point Bou Habib slid out a stack of plaques to make it 1.5 million. Castaignon clearly sensed his hand was no longer good and meekly opted for a fold.
