Event #2: €1,090 No-Limit Hold'em

Moursel Keeps On Doubling!

• Nivå 17: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

It's another big double for Jean-Pierre Grand Moursel, and this one puts him back close to the chip average. Finally. It's been a long road.

We didn't catch up with the pot until the {7-Spades} {J-Hearts} {10-Diamonds} flop, and it was there that Moursel got the last of his 71,000 chips into the middle. The dealer mistakenly announced the amount as 51,000. Mendel Benoit put him to the test, and his {K-Hearts} {J-Spades} was in front for the knockout. Moursel's {9-Clubs} {10-Hearts} was trying, but his pair + flush draw needed to improve to keep him alive.

The turn {Q-Clubs} was a miss, but the river {8-Diamonds} was not. It gave Moursel the straight, doubling him up over 150,000. When Benoit learned of the dealer's mistake, he was less than thrilled, but it was ultimately his responsibility to count the bet. He paid it with a wry smirk, dropping all the way back to about 60,000.
