Hand #135: Heads up, the bracelet twinkling between them, Howard Mash and Jean-René Fontaine started their one-on-one battle with a raise from button Mash to 3,000,000, no call.

Hand #136: Fontaine folded his button.

Hand #137: Mash made it 2,500,000 to go from the button and folded to Fontaine's three-bet to 5,500,000.

Hand #138: Fontaine folded his button again.

Hand #139: Mash took the same button-folding option.

Hand #140: Ditto hands #136 and #138.

Hand #141: Another button fold from Mash.

Hand #142: Fontaine raised to 4,000,000 and Mash quickly threw his hand away.

Hand #143: Mash raised to 3,000,000 and Fontaine three-bet 7,500,000. Mash set his opponent all-in for 21,700,000 effective and Fontaine called, in good shape with {a-Diamonds}{8-Spades} vs. Mash's {a-Spades}{2-Spades}. The flop and turn had the word "chop" fluttering around the Amazon stage area: {j-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{9-Hearts} but the {8-Clubs} pinged out on the river to keep Fontaine's bracelet hopes very much alive. They're neck and neck now.
