John Monnette opened for 4,600 from middle position and received a call from Amaury Detoc in the cutoff. It was heads-up action to the flop, and Monnette promptly checked to Detoc, who fired out 5,300. Monnette thought for a moment before moving all in and Detoc quickly called off for 26,800 total.
Monnette was well out in front but needed to dodge the open-ended straight draw of Detoc. He did so on the turn, but not after the dealer burned and slowly flipped over the on the river.
"Really?" Monnette exclaimed. "You're going to sweat me like that?" Monnette was clearly upset the dealer had paused before revealing the river, and he was quite vocal in his opposition. Regardless, the result was the same and Detoc doubled to 65,000.
Meanwhile, Anthony Russo has been eliminated from the tournament in 31st place.
