Bonomo's Gonna Need a Bigger Boat

• Level 11: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

When we arrived at Table 359, we saw Fabrice Touil had 14,400 out in front of him from the small blind and was facing a raise - which looked like a five-bet - to 34,000 from Justin Bonomo in the big. Touil thought long and hard before making the call. Both players ended up checking the {5-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{j-Spades} flop.

When the {10-Spades} appeared on the turn, Touil led out for a hefty 50,400 and Bonomo made the call. The {10-Diamonds} river saw both players return to checking and Touil threw up his hands as if to suggest the river card screwed him over. Indeed, his full house on the turn with the {5-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} was no longer good as Bonomo made a bigger boat with the {9-Spades}{9-Clubs}.
