If you had to bet who was going to win this first event, Adrien Allain would not have been a bad investement considering the way he has been playing today. When Jack Effel announced all six final table players earlier today it was Allain who received the biggest cheer. Unfortunately, as we all know, poker is a game of decisions and Allain has just made one that has put him out of this tournament in fifth spot.
Allain raised to 25,000 from the cut-off and Azusa Maeda three-bet to 67,000 from his seat in the big blind. Action back to the Frenchman and he moved all-in for 345,000 and Maeda snap-called.
