Hugo Lemaire and Andrea Dato were getting perilously close to playing for stacks. We joined the action with Hugo Lemaire seated in the hijack with a four-bet of 2,750 in front of him, and Andrea Dato seated on the button with a five bet of 10,000 in front of him. Lemaire took a very long time to ponder his next move which was to eventually fold.
