Antoine Saout Eliminated in 4th Place (£67,000)

Homer • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Antoine Saout

It was passed to Ben Warrington who moved all in to cover Antoine Saout. The Frenchman tanked for a minute, shrugged and called off his 800,000 remaining chips.

Warrington: {A-Hearts}{7-Hearts}
Saout: {A-Clubs}{6-Spades}

The flop was {8-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{K-Spades} and all signs pointed to a chop which would happen around 65% of the time. Saout needed to a six to win or needed an eight or higher for a chop.

The {3-Diamonds} came on the turn and Warrington's seven kicker was still playing, the river was the {5-Diamonds} and the pair of kings with an ace-eight-seven kicker was enough to beat Saout's ace-eight-six kicker. The finest of margins.
