It's over! Team France has been knocked out after losing all three heads-up matches in the quarter finals and Team Russia will come into the semifinals in second position.

The final two hands of the match between Sylvain Loosli and Vladimir Troyanovskiy were riveting, and went as following. First Loosli shoved for 9,300 and Troyanovskiy called.

Loosli: {Q-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}
Troyanovskiy: {K-Spades}{5-Diamonds}

The board ran out {J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} and the entire French team erupted in a celebration as their hopes of advancing to the next round were still alive. On the very next hand however Loosli was all in again, and that showdown went as following while he was still the short stack.

Loosli: {A-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}
Troyanovskiy: {K-Clubs}{9-Clubs}

The flop brought {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{2-Spades} and that triggered a huge cheer from Team Canada who now had a virtual lock on making the next round. The turn was the {Q-Hearts} and with that it was all over. The river was the {A-Hearts} and Team France was knocked out of the Global Poker Masters.
