Thorel First to Leave Final Table

poolshir • Level 16: 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante
Jean-Noel Thorel

Joao Simao raised from early position and was called by Steve O'Dwyer in the cutoff and Jean-Noel Thorel in the big blind.

The flop came {9-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}, both Thorel and Simao checked. O'Dwyer bet 42,000 and only Thorel called.

The turn was the {5-Clubs} and now Thorel shoved for his last 62,000 which O'Dywer snap-called.

Jean-Noel Thorel: {a-Hearts}{4-Hearts}
Steve O'Dwyer: {5-Hearts}{5-Spades}

Thorel had flopped top pair and was drawing dead against the set O'Dwyer had turned.

With eight players left and seven getting paid, the bubble has come.
