Aubin Cazals Eliminated in 9th Place (€27,700)

Aubin Cazals - 9th

Aubin Cazals began the day on the short stack, so it was no surprise to see him become the day's first casualty.

It happened when action folded around to the Frenchman in the cutoff and he moved all in for right around 240,000. The button got out of the way, and then Finland's Juha Helppi moved all in over the top from the small blind. Jason Mercier folded the big and the cards were turned up:

Helppi: {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}
Cazals: {A-Hearts}{7-Clubs}

Helppi's kicker has him as a heavy favorite; in fact, the PokerNews Odd Calculator had him as a 71.54% favorite; meanwhile, Cazals had just a 22.74% chance of surviving the hand.

That actually dropped to a measly 4.84% on the {2-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{Q-Spades} flop, and hit zero on the {5-Diamonds} turn. Cazals began to rise even before the {J-Spades} hit the turn on the river, and he exited in ninth place. With that, we've reached the official final table of eight.
