Thorel Eliminates Akhundov

AaronMcBride • Level 14: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante
Murad Akhundov

Jean-Noel Thorel raised to 90,000 from early position, and when the action folded around to Murad Akhundov in the big blind, he contemplated his move for nearly 30 seconds before he moved all in. Thorel asked how much it was for and quickly called after Akhundov had announced 350,000.

Jean-Noel Thorel: {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}
Murad Akhundov: {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}

Board: {6-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{j-Hearts}

It was a classic flip situation, and Thorel took the lead on the flop when he paired his king. Akhundov stood up from his chair to watch the {5-Clubs} turn and {j-Hearts} river confirm his exit before the money spots.

Thorel moved up to 1.3m for the chip lead, with just two more eliminations needed before the remaining players are in the money.
