Five Million-Chip Pot to Castaignon

Homer • Level 32: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante
Remi Castaignon

Walid Bou Habib limped on the button for 160,000 before Remi Castaignon bumped the price up to 450,000. Habib gave it a minute before making the call to see a {K-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{3-Spades} flop.

Both players checked to see the {K-Spades} on the turn and Castaignon led out for 850,000 this time. Bou Habib made the call and the dealer pushed out the {10-Hearts} on the river.

This time Castaignon bet a substantial 1.5 million, but Bou Habib had no intent of folding and made the call. The Frenchman turned over {Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts} for two pair and Bou Habib mucked - Castaignon has over a 2:1 chip lead now.
