Gurgen Melkonyan Eliminated in 12th Place (€24,470)

Gurgen Melkonyan - 12th Place

The shortest stack in the tournament, Russia's Gurgen Melkonyan eventually shoved his remaining 213,000 chips from the button and was called by Team PokerStars Pro Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier in the big blind.

Melkonyan: {5-Hearts} {6-Hearts}
Grospellier: {Q-Spades} {7-Diamonds}

The dealer opened {Q-Clubs} {4-Hearts} {K-Diamonds} pairing ElkY's queen and leaving very little chance for the Russian to double up. The {9-Hearts} on the turn kept Melkonyan's hopes alive, but the {9-Clubs} on the river wasn't what he needed and the Russian hit the rail.
