German PokerStars player Martin Schleich moved all in for his last 57,000 and found a caller in Marko Laine. Schleich tabled and was against the baby pair of Lane. The cards ran out and Schleich doubled up.
On the next hand Anthony Lerust opened for 8,500 and with his newly won chips Schleich raised him to 22,000. Back to Lerust who asked for a count and moved all in. Schleich snapped him off with and Lerust tabled . “Come on.” Said Schleich. The board ran out . “Dammit.” Was the verdict from Schleich who exited the tournament.
French PokerStars player Sebastien Lapeyre, at the same table, piped up, “That’s the twenty fourth time he’s beat a big pair with ace rag.” Which got a big laugh from Lerust as he stacked the chips, but no denial.
