Level 11: 500-1,000 / Ante 100
Stephane Genet was awaiting his fate while three players were still to act on a board of Jh9h2c5d6s. Frederic Maniez checked out of the small blind and Belkacem Habassi moved all in for 15,000 out of the big blind. Darius Tamulevicius eventually folded and Maniez called with slightly more than Habassi.
Only then it was up to Genet to turn over his hand, and he had KcQh for king-high and a busted straight draw. Habassi had Js7h for top pair, but Maniez had that beat with AcJc for the better kicker to claim the entire pot and bust two players, building his stack to 60,000.
Soon after, Tamulevicius flopped a full house with 10c7c in the big blind and showed when none of the opponents wanted to call his bet. Over on table two, Otto Shtapler shoved for just 9,500 and picked up the blinds and antes.
