Favia opened from the cutoff and found three callers, Jack Salter on the button, Serkan Kurnaz in the small blind and Yorane Kerignard in the big blind. The layer saw the dealer place the flop onto the felt, and they checked to Favia who bet 37,000. Kerignard check-raised to 67,000, which forced everyone else out of the pot but Favia.
"I'm all-in," declares Favia and Kerignard cannot believe is luck and he makes the easiest call of his life with . Favia flipped and was in a whole world of trouble.
The turn nor the river were any help to Favia and he is out of the WPT Malta Main Event.
