Pourprix Wheeled Out

Guy Pourprix got his money in great against Stephane Bazin, holding pocket kings against Bazin's fives in what was a pre-flop all-in confrontation.

With his tournament life on the line, Pourprix looked in great shape to double up until the board filled out {4-Clubs} {2-Clubs} {2-Spades} {3-Spades} {A-Clubs}, giving Bazin the wheel. The surrounding spectators let out a collective sigh on Pourprix's behalf and then gave him a round of applause as he exited the tournament area just three places away from the money.
