Francois Billard

Andrey Zaichenko folded huis button and so action was on Francois Billard in the small blind. The French Canadian pushed all in for 2,265,000 and Laurynas Levinskas in the big blind snap called. "How come you always have a hand when you push from the small blind" laughed a relaxed Levinskas, "I only push value" said Billard with a smile after they both turned their hands over.

Francois Billard: {A-Spades}{10-Spades}
Laurynas Levinskas: {K-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}

The flop was safe for Billard with {2-Spades}{J-Clubs}{7-Clubs}. The {Q-Spades} on the turn however, was not. Levinskas was now ahead but Billard had plenty of outs with straight and flush draw cards to hit.

The {10-Clubs} on the river paired him up but it wasn't enough. Billard leaves for Canada with €405,260. Play is now heads up.
