Juanda Slipping

John Juanda

Stephane Blouin opened with a raise to 1,200 from under the gun +1. Action folded to John Juanda who was on the button and he popped it up with a reraise to 3,600. Action folded back around and after a few seconds Blouin just called.

The flop came down {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{A-Spades} and after a few seconds Blouin checked. Juanda continued firing with a bet of 4,200 and Blouin called after thinking for a bit. The turn was the {A-Clubs} and both players checked. On the river {5-Hearts}, Blouin put in a bet of 5,200. Juanda took a second look at his cards, counted his chips, then eventually folded his hand. That hand dropped Juanda to under the Day 1 starting stack and left him looking for some much needed chips here on Day 2.
