Sylvain Gonon Eliminated in 10th Place ($42,656)

Josh_Cahlik • Level 25: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante
Sylvain Gonon - 10th Place

Ryan Hughes opened with a raise to 65,000 and received four callers to the flop.

The dealer produced a flop of {8-Clubs}{5-Spades}{K-Spades} and two checks came to Sylvain Gonon who bet out 175,000. Neil Willerson called and the rest of the table folded. The two went heads up to the {6-Hearts} turn. Gonon moved a large stack of green t25,000 chips into the center for a bet totaling 500,000.

Willerson contemplated for a moment before moving a stack of green chips of his own into the middle for a call. The river was the {9-Spades} and Gonon checked. Willerson announced that he was all in a Gonon snap-called. Willerson showed {A-Spades}{7-Spades} for the nuts and a frustrated Gonon threw his {8-Diamonds}{8h across the table. Gonon's flopped set was defeated by Willerson's flush and he was sent to the rail. Willerson's stack is now sitting at about 3,800,000 in chips.

Gonon's elimination has now set in motion the final table of this World Series of Poker event.
