Antoine Saout

Hand #126: Scott Blumstein raised to 4.2 million on the button and Antoine Saout called from the small blind.

The flop came {j-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} and Saout checked. Blumstein checked also, and the dealer put out the {4-Clubs} on the turn. Saout checked again and Blumstein bet 5.6 million. Saout called and the dealer completed the board with the {j-Hearts} on the river.

Saout checked for a third time and Blumstein moved all in, putting Saout to the test for his last 26.1 million chips. Saout took his sunglasses off and stared at the board and then at Blumstein. Eventually, he called.

Saout tabled {k-Clubs}{j-Diamonds} for trip jacks, but Blumstein held {5-Spades}{3-Spades} for a straight to the seven. Blumstein headed to the rail to celebrate and Saout was eliminated in fifth place, pocketing $2 million for his second Main Event final table performance.

Here is what Saout had to say after his elimination:

The remaining four players are guaranteed $2,600,000 from here on out.
