Franck Kalfon Eliminated in 5th Place (€165,000)

Shamus • Level 30: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante
Franck Kalfon - 5th place

Remi Castaignon raised to 200,000 from under the gun and got a single caller in Franck Kalfon on the button who left himself but 1,220,000 behind. The blinds stepped aside, and the flop came {Q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{3-Spades}.

Castaignon led at the flop for 275,000. Kalfon sat upright and put on his sunglasses, then began counting out his remaining chips, first putting them in many small stacks before him, then reassembling them all into a couple of columns before pushing all in. Castaignon called right away.

Kalfon: {K-Spades}{Q-Spades}
Castaignon: {A-Spades}{A-Hearts}

Kalfon had flopped top pair with a spade flush draw, while Castaignon had the overpair of aces. The turn then came the {K-Hearts}, the crowd yelling out at the sight of the card. Kalfon had taken the lead with two pair, but his advantage was short-lived as the river then brought the {10-Hearts}, putting a pair on board and thus giving Castaignon the best hand.
