Philippe Boucher has seen his chip graph steadily increase through these first few levels. He just played out a hand in position and managed to win it without showdown.
He raised to 2,500 from the button and Palevic three-bet to 7,500 from the small blind. Victor Ramdin called quickly from the big blind and that helped bring in Boucher.
The flop was and and Palevic continued for 17,000 and only Boucher called. The turn was checked to the river where Palvic checked to face a 24,500 bet. The Swede procrastinated for a time and folded, only after Boucher started speaking to him.
