Akim Aouine Eliminated in 12th Place (€33,440)

Chad_Holloway • Level 24: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante
Akim Aouine

Three eliminations just happened in quick succession, that latest being France's Akim Aouine.

It happened when action folded to Jaroslaw Sikora in the small blind and he raised to 55,000. Aouine three-bet all in from the big for roughly 400,000, and Sikora snap-called.

Sikora: {q-Spades}{q-Diamonds}
Aouine: {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

The {3-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{3-Spades} flop gave Sikora a full house, which meant Aouine needed to catch either running aces or threes to win the pot. The {9-Hearts} turn took away any chance of that happening, and Aouine's elimination became official once the {7-Spades} was put out on the river.
