Laurent Michot

Gaby Livshitz opened the action with a raise to 160,000 with the {j-Diamonds}{10-Spades} and Laurent Michot called with the {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}, Tomas Paiva filled up from the big blind with the {k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}.

The flop brought {q-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} and Paiva checked, Livshitz bet 225,000 and Michot quickly called, as did Paiva after very brief consideration. Livshitz improved to the nuts on the {8-Clubs} turn and Paiva checked.

Livshitz bet 875,000 into a pot of 1,275,000 and Michot made the call with 1,860,000 behind, and Paiva folded instantly.

After the {2-Diamonds} river, Livshitz checked out the stack of his opponent and used a time bank extension. He then moved all-in and Michot now carefully counted his remaining stack, turned around to check the tournament info screen and used his last time bank before making the call.

Michot's run ended in 7th place for €134,610 and Livshitz closed the gap to chip leader Norbert Szecsi.
