EPT Deauville: Entertaining Jais out in 5th, Than Trong back in front
Frenchman Bruno Jais has just been sent to the rail by Vuong Than Trong who reclaims the chip lead with a 11,700,000 stack. Jais, who has been playing an entertaining if not unorthodox game, opened the pot to 450,000 from the cut-off and was thee-bet to 1,050,000 by Than Trong on the button.
Vadzim Kursevich had a long think about coming over the top but eventually passed his hand. Jais made the call and quickly shoved the 6♣8♥9♠ flop for his remaining 2,200,000. Than Trong was similarly expedient in making the call.
Than Trong: K♣K♦
Jais caught a queen on the turn but failed to get any more help on the river. Four players remain as we go into the dinner break.
