The Sweetness is Gone

Marc-Andre Ladouceur - out

On a {10-Diamonds} {8-Diamonds} {4-Hearts} flop, Marc-Andre Ladouceur shoved all in against Nicolas Fierro, and the two men were very close in chips. Fierro had 1.35 million, Ladoceur 1.37 million, and the cards were on their backs.

Ladouceur: {Q-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds}
Fierro: {10-Spades} {8-Hearts}

The two pair were in front for Fierro, and they held fast as the turn {Q-Spades} and river {6-Hearts} filled out the board. It's 2.8 million for Fierro now, just 20,000 for Ladouceur.

On the next hand, Ladouceur was all in for 15,000 from the small blind, and Pius Heinz bet Stephane Albertini out of the side pot. When the cards were turned up, the board showed {10-Spades} {9-Clubs} {4-Spades} {10-Diamonds}, and Heinz's {Q-Clubs} {10-Clubs} had Ladouceur's {Q-Diamonds} {3-Clubs} drawing dead. The river was a meaningless {8-Diamonds}, and Ladouceur is headed to the rail to collect his six-figure check.
