ElleSriracha • Level 40: 800,000-1,600,000, 200,000 ante
Antoine Saout

Hand #107: Scott Blumstein raised to 4.1 million from the small blind and Antoine Saout mucked his big blind, sending more chips to the overwhelming chip leader.

Hand #108: Action folded around to Blumstein on the button and he made it 3.4 million to go. Saout moved all in for 23.9 million from the small blind and Blumstein snap-called.

Antoine Saout: {4-Hearts}{4-Clubs}
Scott Blumstein: {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}

Saout was at risk with a pair of fours, flipping with Blumstein's ace-queen suited.

The flop came {k-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} and Saout remained ahead with a pair of fours.

The turn was the {2-Diamonds} and Saout needed to fade the river to stay alive.

The dealer completed the board with the {9-Spades} and Saout held on to double through.

Saout gave his fellow countryman Benjamin Pollak a fist bump and celebrated with his rail.
