Alexis Nicolai Eliminated in 12th Place (€21,950)

Jacobo Montoya limped for 200,000 in the cutoff, leaving himself 30,000 behind. That would prove to be a very wise and profitable decision, because Alexis Nicolai moved all-in on the button for a little over 2,000,000 and Thomas Lhomme moved in over top for more.

Lhomme then turned over his hand {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}, not realizing Jacobo was still in the hand.

Jacobo couldn't believe his situation, but folded, and left himself the 30,000 in hopes that Nicolai would be eliminated, giving him a pay jump. Nicolai's hand was then revealed,

Alexis Nicolai: {a-Clubs}{j-Spades}
Thomas Lhomme: {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}

The board came {2-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{5-Spades}{q-Hearts} and indeed Nicolai was eliminated, while Jacobo's 30,000 behind earned him that pay jump.
