Under the gun, Stephane Bazin moved all in for a cool 1,000,000 chips. The next two players folded, but Alain Roy looked down at {A-Clubs} {Q-Hearts} and made the call, having his opponent well covered. Bazin tabled {9-Diamonds} {9-Spades} and was racing for his tournament life.

Board: {K-Spades} {6-Spades} {7-Clubs} {4-Hearts} {A-Spades}

The ace on the river spells the end for Stephane Bazin, who will take home $321,709 for his fine efforts this weekend. Bazin ran into some terrible luck here at the final table, getting outdrawn on numerous occasions. Each time, he handled the situation with class and dignity, congratulating his opponent and putting his game face back on. This time, he has no chips left to play with, but picking up the check from the cashier's desk should provide some consolation.

With Bazin's elimination, we are down to just three players.
