Savary Snack For Christophe

O'Dea raised to 140,000 from the button and Savary called in the big blind.

The flop was {9-Diamonds} {3-Clubs} {2-Clubs} and Savary led out for 260,00. O'Dea raised to 550,000 and Savary almost immediately pushed all-in putting O'Dea to the test.

After a couple of minutes, O'Dea passed and Savary increases his chip lead with 4.88 million. O'Dea down to 1.84 million.

O'Double Up for Arneodo

On the button and the short stack, Julien Arneodo shoved in for 430,000. Small blind Eoghan O'Dea quickly made the call as Lacay ducked out from the small blind. Arneodo tabled {A-Hearts} {J-Diamonds}, and he was racing for his tournament life against the baby pair, {4-Clubs} {4-Hearts}.

One card at time, the dramatic dealer ran out a flop of {K-Clubs}... {7-Diamonds}... {J-Diamonds}.

Half of the room erupted with, "Jack! Jack!" as their man had taken a big lead and was looking good to double up. The other half of the room was yelling for a four, but their cries would not be answered. The turn and river were blanks for O'Dea, and he's sent a double up over to Arneodo.

Arneodo - 1,020,000
O'Dea - 2,600,000

Savary Wins Biggest Pot Of The Competition

Ludovic Lacay raised to 110,000 from the button, Christophe Savary called in the small blind.

The flop was {Q-Clubs} {9-Clubs} {2-Spades} and Savary check-called a bet of 125,000. Both players checked the {5-Spades} turn before Savary led for 450,000 on the {9-Spades} river.

Lacay moved all-in and Savary instantly called with {2-Clubs} {2-Diamonds} as Lacay could only show {10-Spades} {4-Spades} for a backdoor flush.

Savary is the new chip leader.

Lacay Gets a Laydown

Ludovic Lacay button-raised to 110,000, and Christophe Savary made the call from the small blind.

On a flop of {2-Clubs} {2-Spades} {4-Clubs}, Savary checked and allowed Lacay to continue out with a bet of 150,000. Christophe then stuck in a check-raise to 400,000, only to see Lacay jam all in.

The move sent Savary deep into the tank, and he would sit scratching his head for what seemed like an eternity. At least four or five minutes later, he announced a fold, exposing his {J-Clubs} {J-Hearts} and returning his cards to the dealer.

Lacay didn't flinch as he raked in a very nice chip-up pot. He moves up to 3.45 million, while Savary has saved himself 1.84 million to use in a better spot.

O'Dea Rivers The Nuts

With the board reading {7-Hearts} {K-Spades} {8-Diamonds} {3-Hearts} {6-Diamonds}, Eoghan O'Dea bet 340,000 on the river into Ludovic Lacay.

Lacay made the call but could only smile and muck when O'Dea turned over {10-?} {9-?} for the nut straight, prompting cheers from Nigel Murphy on the rail.

O'Dea looks to be the slight chip leader at almost 3 million, Lacay has just a little less.

Arneodo Looks For A Better Spot

Ludovic Lacay raised to 120,000 on the button. Julien Arneodo called in the big blind.

The flop came {Q-Clubs} {10-Hearts} {8-Clubs} and Arneodo checked. Lacay bet 175,000 and Arneodo thought before raising to 400,000. Lacay immediately moved all-in and Arneodo tanked. He'd put about half his stack in the middle but instead elected to fold and is now woefully short once more.

Lacay has almost 3.3 million and Arneodo down to just 500,000.
