Event #7: €10,400 Main Event Championship

Thibaud Guenegou Eliminated in 12th Place (€67,500)

Thibaud Guenegou

The outer table folded around to the blinds where Thibaud Guenegou shoved in for 425,000 from the small. In the big, Elio Fox looked down at {8-Spades} {8-Hearts} and quickly made the call, and Guenegou's {Q-Hearts} {8-Diamonds} was in a bad way.

The {9-Diamonds} {6-Diamonds} {J-Hearts} flop was a miss for the at-risk player, but the turn {A-Diamonds} gave him nine outs to the flush. He seemed to know it wasn't coming, though, and the river {6-Spades} is the last card he'll see today.

So, then, it's Guenegou falling out in 12th place, and that's good for €67,500. It's not what he hoped to accomplish here today, but it should prove to be some consolation in the morning.

The host nation now rests its hopes in Arnaud Mattern.
