Thomas Boivin

Johan Schumacher opened to 160,000 in the hijack and Thomas Boivin jammed in his stack of 1,300,000 from the small blind. Schumacher called and the hands were revealed.

Thomas Boivin: {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}
Johan Schumacher: {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}

Both players had similar stacks and they found themselves against each other in a classic flip.

The dealer spread the {6-Spades}{6-Hearts}{2-Spades} flop. The {7-Spades} turn left Boivin one card away from a double, but the {q-Diamonds} spiked the river, and Schumacher breathed a sigh of relief. The two players from Belgium embraced as Boivin took his exit.
