Manig Loeser was just recently eliminated on the outer table leaving Rainer Kempe and Koray Aldemir as the only Germans remaining in the field. Rainer Kempe had something to say about that when he called a raise in the big blind of 2,200,000 from Charles La Boissonniere in the small blind.
The dealer spread the flop of and La Boissonniere led out for 1,400,000. Kempe raised to 4,200,000 and La Boissonniere called to see the pair the board on the turn. The French Canadian checked again and Kempe stuck in about half of his stack, a bet of 5,800,000. La Boissonniere used up one of his time extensions before letting his hand go. Kempe couldn't help but show the with a smile on his face.
