Clement Richez stares down Kyle Steinfelt as the latter tanked for his tournament life. 

The first all-in of Level 22 didn’t occur in a preflop confrontation but in a three-street affair where Clement Richez put Kyle Steinfelt to the test.

Richez opened to 35,000 in the cutoff and Steinfelt three-bet to 87,000 from the small blind. Richez called and the flop came out J♣J8♣. Steinfelt checked and Richez bet 65,000. Steinfelt came along to the 9♠ turn and both players checked.

Steinfelt bet 70,000 on the 6♠ river and Richez shoved, putting Steinfelt all-in for 283,000 total. Steinfelt wiped down his palms as he agonized over the decision. After two minutes of thinking, he called with QQ and had the 65 of Richez beat.

Steinfelt is second in chips with 900,000 and Richez drops to 385,000.
