Thorel Eliminated by Benitez

BrandonBloom • Level 19: Blinds 5,000-10,000, 10,000 ante
Jean-Noel Thorel

Francisco Benitez opened to 20,000 from under the gun and Jean-Noel Thorel defended the big blind.

The {q-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{7-Clubs} flop was checked to the {7-Spades} turn. Thorel announced "all in" for the rest of his short stack, and Benitez quickly put in chips for a call.

Jean-Noel Thorel: {a-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}
Francisco Benitez: {a-Spades}{q-Spades}

Thorel was drawing to a chop, and the {3-Spades} completed the board to eliminate the Frenchman in ninth place. Players are now on the bubble and one elimination from the money.
