Main Event

Thibaud Toppled

[user169806] • Nivå 7: 250-500, 50 ante

Thibaud Guenegou has been eliminated from the main event after his fellow countryman Victor Chopeaux hit a runner-runner straight.

We arrived at the table to see Guenegou all-in with the {Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} in front of him — the same hand that resulted in Vicky Coren's elimination earlier in the evening — and Chopeaux with {A-Diamonds}{J-Spades} in front of him. The {9-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{8-Spades} flop had already been dealt and the {10-Hearts} was the next card out of the deck, its appearance prompting a few ooh la la's from those seated at the table. The {7-Hearts} completed an unlikely straight for Chopeaux and with that Guenegou's tournament came to an abrupt end.
