Frenchman Jean-Noel Thorel just doubled up for two times after shoving his stack against Alex Bilokur at first and then doing the same against Laurent Polito.
The first hand was opened by Tobias Reinkemeier with a raise to 32,000 from under the gun and called by Carlos Mora in the hijack seat. Bilokur re-raised to 78,000 in the small blind and Thorel shoved for 200,000. Reinkemeier and Mora folded and Bilokur called.
The Frenchman was dominated, but the flop gave Thorel a pair putting him in the lead. Bilokur needed to hit an ace or a queen, but neither the on the turn, nor the on the river was good for him and Thorel doubled up.
Just a few hands later Thorel, sitting in the hijack seat called Laurent Polito's shove from the big blind. This time Thorel was in the lead holding against Polito's . The board ran and Thorel doubled his 460,000 stack to 954,000.
