Jakob Toestesen raised to 200,000 from early position and Benjamin Statz called around the table in the cutoff seat. In the small blind, Nicolas Babel squeezed in an all-in shove for 1.915 million total. Toestesen passed but Statz made the call to put Babel at risk. They were flipping a coin for, oh, about 4.2 million chips.
The flop was a swing and a miss, coming . The turn put Babel one card from extinction, but the river was his salvation. Babel caught his pair to double up, and Statz has taken a hit back to an average stack of about 5.1 million.
