Jason Wheeler and Arnaud Mattern have faced each other several times on the European Poker Tour and are now seated at the same table at the 2014 World Series of Poker.
Both have won pots recently without having to even go to a flop.
Wheeler was facing a 425 raise from middle position and opted to three-bet to 1,125 from the button. His opponent couldn't quite pull the trigger and sent his cards into the muck.
The next hand, Mattern raised to 425 from under the gun and nobody wanted to tangle with the Frenchman and he added the blinds and antes to his stack.
One table over from Mattern is his fellow countryman and former November Nine member Antoine Saout, who has 6,700 chips in front of him.
