Jean-Noel Thorel was running good so far, but Alex Bilokur did much better on the last hand and eliminated the Frenchman from the tournament.

Laurent Polito opened the hand with a raise to 40,000 from the button and Bilokur called from the small blind as well as did Thorel from the big. The flop went {8-Clubs} {5-Clubs} {6-Hearts} and all three checked.

Bilokur bet 55,000 on the {3-Clubs} turn and Thorel raised to 400,000. Polito went out of the way and Bilokur shoved. Thorel called and opened {J-Clubs} {6-Clubs} for a flush. However, he soon got disappointed to see Bilokur's {K-Clubs} {2-Clubs} for a king-high flush. The {5-Hearts} on the river didn't change a thing and Thorel hit the rail.
