Heads Up Play

Michel Dattani started as the underdog, and after a couple of hand playing heads-up his deficit has grown to a point where he could start worrying. The Portugese player raised from the button to 16,000 and Boucher called. The flop came down {3-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} and Boucher check-called a 16,000 bet.

On the turn the {4-Diamonds} appeared and Boucher checked once more. Dattani counted out some chips and threw in 48,000. Boucher gently counted out the bet and slowly pushed his chips across the line making the call.

The river brought out the {10-Hearts} and for the third straight time Boucher checked. Dattani pondered for a bit before taking a big stack of 5,000 chips and betting 100,000. Boucher called quickly and we got to see the following cards.

Michel Dattani{J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{2-Clubs}
Philippe Boucher{A-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{9-Spades}

Boucher took down the pot and increased his chip lead to 4:1.
