Event #32: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Roussel-Galle Loses a Million, Gains It Back Plus Some

• Nivo 30: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante
Valerie Roussel-Galle

Valerie Roussel-Galle has been involved in two pots in quick succession in the second half of the final level. The first merely added to day-long chip leader Howard Mash's huge stack, and the second doubled her back into contention for Day 4.

Roussel-Galle, heads up against Mash, had bet out on a flop of {a-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{6-Hearts} and been called, the pot total now reaching 1,650,000. On the {2-Hearts} turn, she check-raised Mash's 450,000 bet to 1,000,000 straight. Mash thought for a while, then made the call. When she checked on the {10-Clubs} river, Mash checked straight away behind her and they both showed down pairs of aces: hers had the {j-Clubs} kicker and his the {q-Clubs}.

"You put me to the test..." said Mash.

Shortly thereafter she moved all in preflop from the big blind over a preflop button open from Roger Stewart (400,000). He called the 1,390,000 total, turning over {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}, which was only ahead of her {9-Clubs}{10-Clubs} until the flop, which paired her nine.
