In the cutoff, Gilles Bernies opened the betting with a raise to 55,000. His neighbor on the button, Jiachen Gong, shoved all in for 450,000. In the small blind, Patrick Clarke tanked for a fair bit before he eventually tossed his cards into the muck. Mikhail Petrov folded his big blind and Bernies did one last check of his cards before calling.
"At least my suits are live" Gong said, while also getting the news that Clarke had folded an ace.
The board ran out and Gong made his exit in 15th place, netting him €28,760.
