Hands #83-86: Saout Doubles Through Blumstein

ajlamers • Level 39: 600,000-1,200,000, 200,000 ante
Antoine Saout

Hand #83: Scott Blumstein raised to 2.5 million from early position and Benjamin Pollak three-bet to 6.9 million in the cutoff. The action folded back around to Blumstein who thought for a moment before pushing his cards towards the muck.

Hand #84: Antoine Saout moved all in from early position for 14,150,000 and the action was folded all the way around, allowing Saout to pick up the blinds and antes.

Hand #85: Pollak raised to 2.8 million from early position and Dan Ott shoved all-in for 13,950,000 on the button. The action folded around to Pollak who asked for a count. He leaned back in his chair and took a drink while thinking about his decision. Eventually, Pollak decided to lay his hand down and Ott took down the pot.

Hand #86: The action folded to Blumstein in the small blind who moved all-in, putting Saout in the big blind to the test for his tournament life. Saout briefly thought before making the call.

Saout: {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts}
Blumstein: {8-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}

The flop came {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}{10-Clubs} and Saout took a commanding lead in the hand. The turn was the {3-Diamonds} and that sealed the deal. The insignificant {a-Clubs} completed the board and Saout doubled up through Blumstein.
