Urgo Finds New Life


Simon Charette opened a recent hand to 35,000 from under the gun, Beretand Grospellier folded the button and Joseph Urgo moved all in for about 175,000. The big blind folded and after a few seconds Charette convinced himself to make the call.

Joseph Urgo: {A-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}
Simon Charette: {7-Hearts}{9-Hearts}

Charette was hoping for two live cards, but alas Urgo had his nine out kicked. A {k-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{4-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} board was released and Urgo was awarded a double up, as his ace high was best.
