gaellej • Level 24: Blinds 20,000-40,000, 40,000 ante

Said Haho opened to 85,000 with {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts} and Mounim Kaddouri called in the big blind with {9-Spades}{8-Diamonds} to find a flop {8-Spades}{10-Hearts}{8-Spades}, giving him trips. Kaddouri check-raised to 175,000 Haho's continuation bet worth 50,000 and the latter called.

The turn fell the {6-Diamonds} and Kaddouri bet 375,000. This time Haho quickly folded.

Bachir Moutki started the action with a raise to 85,000, holding {k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} and Mounim Kaddouri three-bet in the hijack to 255,000. Rakesh Lalwani shoved in the cutoff for 440,000 and it folded back to Kaddouri who called.

Rakesh Lalwani: {j-Clubs}{j-Hearts}
Mounim Kaddouri: {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}

Lalwani was in desperate shape for the double up, but got some hopes for the flush on a board {5-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{4-Spades}{a-Clubs}. However, the {k-Diamonds} hit the river and Lalwani was sent to the payout desk to collect DH 110,000 (€11,000) for his third final table of the week.
