Amourette Loses One Early


Antoine Amourette is no stranger to success on the tournament felt around the world. Amourette's poker resume include a World Poker Tour runner-up finish, along with a 5th place at 2010's APPT Sydney Main Event. He'll be looking for a similiar result here in Cebu, but he'll have to do better than a recent hand we caught him in.

By the time we got the table there was a board showing {6-Spades}{k-Spades}{7-Spades}{4-Hearts} and Amourette was first to act, leading with a check. His opponent then bet 2,100 and Amourette made the call.

The {10-Diamonds} on the river would both players check and Amourette would reveal his {q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} first. His opponent then turned over {k-Hearts}{10-Hearts}, enough to send Amourette's card into the muck.
