zedmaster84 • Level 18: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante
Nicolas Cardyn

In the cutoff Tony Blanchandin raised to 25,000 and Nicolas Cardyn defended his big blind. On a flop of {9-Hearts}{7-Spades}{4-Diamonds}, Cardyn checked and subsequently check-raised from 20,000 to 56,000, leaving himself 120,000 behind. Blanchandin moved all in and Cardyn called it off.

Nicolas Cardyn: {K-Spades}{9-Clubs}
Tony Blanchandin: {J-Diamonds}{J-Spades}

Cardyn seemed to have accepted his fate, but suddenly jumped into the lead with the {K-Diamonds} turn. The fortune lasted all but a few moments, as the {J-Clubs} river gave Blanchandin a set and Cardyn the exit in 19th place for £3,300.
