It was a simple all-in pre-flop and a call. Kranich made the move and Esquevin called, showing A-3 to the German’s A-7. Kranich was ahead but the possibility of a split pot would remain. The flop came 9c-Td-6d. Kranich wanted low cards without seeing a three and he got it. A 5s on the turn, an ace on the river. It was all over. Moritz Kranich is the EPT Deauville champion.
A new level begins with the stacks looking like this:
Moritz Kranich – 5,100,000
Arnaud Esquevin – 1,400,000
