It's Been An Up And Down Last Few Levels For Lavoie

Event 5
Level 21 (8,000/16,000/2,000)
Total Entries: 216
Players Remaining: 9
Chip Average: 360,000

Just after saying Michael Lavoie had recovered from his earlier loss to Teddy Geddes, he looked poised to take the chip lead from Geddess as he and Andrew Lauer got into a pre-flop leveling war that resulted in close to 1,000,000 chips ending up in the middle of the pot with Lauer looking for two outs to save his tournament life.

The action was picked up with Lauer making a pre-flop raise to 30,000 and Teddy calling in the small blind.

Lavoie would then raise to 100,000 even from the big blind and Lauer, after taking a count of his stack, would announce "all-in".

Geddes would quickly fold and Lavoie would snap call, getting a muffled curse from Lauer before he tabled [10c][10h].

Lavoie would again have a massive pocket pair, this time better than the last, as he tabled [Ad][Ah], but he'd only be able to beat pocket tens once, as the board would run out [2d][5c][10s][Qc][8c].

Lavoie couldn't believe it and either could Lauer, giving a Tiger Woods-esq fist pump as he stepped away from the table.

When the dust settled and the chips were counted, Lauer would be doubling up close to the 950,000 chip mark. and Lavoie would be left with just under 50,000.

But, while we might have started this post thinking he was going to be the next player eliminated, he's now doubled up twice through Lauer and he's now sitting with over 200,000 and he might just be on his way to making another comeback here in Event 5.
