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 and quickly made the call, and Guenegou's was in a bad way.
The flop was a miss for the at-risk player, but the turn gave him nine outs to the flush. He seemed to know it wasn't coming, though, and the river 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.
