Fabrice Soulier was given the honour of announcing shuffle-up and deal and it seems that it has given him a bit of momentum. He is seated on a tough table featured Jeff Lisandro and David Williams but he has gotten off to a great start.
David Williams started the ball rolling with a raise to 125 and Soulier called on the button as did the small blind.
The small blind checked to Williams who bet 225 and Soulier called before the small blind ducked out of the way.
Williams continued his aggression with a bet of 600 and Soulier made the call.
Williams made a very confident third bet of 1,500 but Soulier raised the stakes to 3,550. Williams pondered his next move which was to fold face up and Soulier raked in the pot.
