Souprayenmestry Returns, Doubles, Doubles Again

Jean Souprayenmestry

We shared the story of the man who thought it was dinner break a few minutes ago, and that man, Jean Souprayenmestry, returned to a stack of just 3,000.

Fortunately for him, (and seemingly fortunately for his very good-natured table, who have begun celebrating his victories) Souprayenmestry has managed to rally that stack all the way up 40,000, more than three times what he had before his unscheduled dinner break. This includes doubling with    against    for his last 7,300 after winning an initial double, then waking up with aces two hands after break to double again.

We'll keep an eye on Souprayenmestry and see if his run from 3,000 continues.
