Pascal Lefrancois Eliminated in 9th Place (€113,250)
Nivel 22 : 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante
Well, it didn't take long for the first elimination of the day.
Action folded to World Series of Poker bracelet winner Pascal Lefrancois on the button and he opened for 52,000. Chip leader Davidi Kitai then three-bet to 133,000 from the small blind, the big folded, and Lefrancois announced that he was all in for roughly 600,000. Kitai snap-called.
Lefrancois had picked a bad time to shove as Kitai had woken up with a powerhouse hand. The flop was no help to Lefrancois, but he did pick up a gutshot straight draw on the turn. Unfortunately for him the blanked on the river and he hit the rail in ninth place for €113,250.
We're now down to the official final table of eight.
