Event 23: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em - Six-Handed

Table #35: Soulier, Veldhuis, Petersen and Trigg

[user169505] • Tase 1: 25-50, 0 ante

Table #35 is a table full of talent. In seat 1 we have the talented Dutch pro Lex Veldhuis. Veldhuis has had a very quiet 2012 with not one single cash to his name, despite taking ElkY's head off in a kick boxing match staged in Marbella earlier this year. Despite his barren run Veldhuis has 12 World Series of Poker cashes including 1 final table in 2009 where he finished in 7th place in the $40,000 No-Limit Hold'em event.

WSOP bracelet winner Fabrice Soulier is seated next to Veldhuis. Soulier has one cash to his name this series finishing 10th in the $1,500 Seven Card Stud for $9,046.

Mickey Petersen takes the number five seat. Petersen is an online legend who recently added a European Poker Tour main event victory to his resume. Petersen won the difficult stage held in Copenhagen earlier this year and has 4 WSOP cashes to his name including a 292nd place in Event #9A $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Re-Entry.

Rounding off the table is British Pro Richard Trigg. Trigg is wearing his England football shirt in honor of his beloved team who square off against the French today. Trigg has 3 WSOP cashes to his name including 1 final table in the $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Triple Chance last year where he finished in 6th spot for $55,355.

Here are a few hands from that table:

Richard Trigg raised to 125 from the button and Fabrice Soulier defended the big blind. The flop was {7-Hearts} {3-Diamonds} {3-Spades} and Soulier check-called a 150 Trigg bet. Onto fourth street and the pair shared the {10-Spades} and the same action ensued; this time for 350. Finally there was the {K-Clubs} on the river, Soulier checked, Trigg fired his third barrel for 725, Soulier check-raised to 2,350 and Trigg folded his hand.

Then Lex Veldhuis raised to 125 in the hijack, Soulier called in the cutoff before the player on the button squeezed for 450 in total. Veldhuis folded, Soulier made the call and we were heads-up to the flop. The dealer placed the {Q-Hearts} {J-Spades} {5-Diamonds} onto the felt and both players checked. On the turn we had the {6-Diamonds} and Soulier took down the pot with a 675 lead.
