€8,500 Cannes Main Event

Mattern Part One

We arrived late to this hand with the board showing {6-Diamonds} {9-Hearts} {J-Diamonds} {2-Diamonds} {2-Spades}. Arnaud Mattern and Patrice Albert Sitbon are heads-up. We were told by one spectator that Mattern checked raised on the flop before both players checked the turn.

Mattern checked once more on the river to face a 60,000 bet from Sitbon. Mattern responded by moving all-in for 141,000. Sitbon took an age to call but finally did so and mucked upon seeing Mattern's {9-Diamonds} {9-Spades} for a full house.

Mattern is now up to 380,000 now whereas Sitbon is down to 310,000.
