Maxime Heroux

Craig Varnell raised to 420,000 from under the gun, Maxime Heroux made a pot-sized three-bet to 1,380,000 from the small blind, and Varnell called.

The flop came {Q-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{4-Spades}, Heroux shoved, and Varnell quickly called to put him at risk.

Craig Varnell: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}
Maxime Heroux: {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{8-Clubs}

Varnell had the lead with top set but Heroux had lots of room to improve with straight and flush draws. The {K-Hearts} turn kept Varnell ahead and the {9-Diamonds} river gave him a boat to win the pot and end Heroux's deep run in this event.
