Event #45: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Viva la Resistance!

• Level 9: 300-600, 75 ante

With his French compatriots having already captured three gold bracelets in this year's WSOP, Laury Vanlerberghe looked to continue the Franco-revival, eliminating an opponent in the process.

Vanlerberghe raised to 4,000 before the flop and his opponent shoved over the top for his last 8,425. After asking for a count, Vanlerberghe made the call and showed down his {A-Spades}{K-Spades}, which put him in a dominating position over the other player's {A-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}.

The final board rolled out {Q-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{J-Spades}{4-Diamonds} and Vanlerberghe's ace-king high was the winner.
