Walid Bou Habib Eliminated In 8th Place ($35,020)


Walid Bou Habib has become our eighth place finisher in rather cruel circumstances too.

A preflop raising war resulted in Bou Habib being all-in with {A-Spades}{q-Clubs} against Marvin Rettenmaier's {A-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}. Bou Habib stood from his chair as soon as the flop was dealt and when you see it, it is easy to see why. The {j-Spades}{j-Hearts}{q-Clubs} flop was almost perfect for Rettenmaier and when the turn and river were the {10-Clubs} and {8-Hearts} respectively, it was game over for Bou Habib.
