Philippe Boucher, fresh with Jack Ellwood chips, raised to 12,000 from the cut-off. Jarred Solomon was in the small blind and three-bet to 42,000 out of a 147,000 stack. When the action was back on the Canadian he potted it up to 132,000.
Solomon didn't look too happy at the spot he had put himself in and mumbled, "Got a really bad hand. It was such a good spot though." After a few minutes he said, "I'm getting two-to-one; let's gamble" and committed the rest of his chips. Call.
The board ran to make Boucher's pair of tens the winning hand. He claimed the South African's scalp and moved into the chip lead.
