The Demise of Remy Biechel
Level 16: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante
Remy Biechel was looking a good bet for a cash prize earlier in this tournament with a peak of around 250,000 chips. We have just stumbled across him talking to his friends in the corridor and that can only mean one thing. Here is the exit of Biechel courtesy of our French colleagues in the media room.
There was a raise to 8,000 and Biechel three-bet to 19,000 with Ax Kx. The flop was a good one for Reimy as it fell Kx 9x 4x (rainbow). The original raiser checked to Biechel who bet 13,000 and his opponent check-raised all-in for 40,000. Biechel called and tabled his Ax Kx but his opponent had flopped a set with 9x 9x. This hand pushed Biechel down to 18,000, and it went into the middle not long after, when Biechel found A 8 but he ran into pocket aces and that was the end of that.
