Dani Stern raised from the Hi-jack to 26,000 and was raised by Jean-Noel Thorel to 75,000. It folded back round to Stern who put out a chunky four bet, but Thorel didn’t need a count as he announced “All in.” Stern called and showed his {q-Hearts}{q-Spades} and Thorel had to come from way behind with his {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}. The board ran out {3-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{7-Clubs} and Thorel was eliminated giving a big pot to Stern.

Thorel had played a quirky and aggressive game throughout the two days, frequently confusing his younger opponents and earlier today had cracked aces with his fours all in pre, but now he was heading for the exit.
