Gylbert Drolet Eliminated in 17th Place ($25,780)

Gylbert Drolet - 17th place

Alex Cordero opened with a raise to 51,000 from early position, then Gylbert Drolet reraised all in for 157,000 total from a seat over. That's when Hieu Nguyen reraised again over the top for 300,000. It folded back around, Cordero stepped aside, and the remaining players tabled their cards.

Drolet: {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}
Nguyen: {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}

Drolet didn't want to see clubs, but the flop came {Q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{J-Clubs} to put him at risk. The turn was the {10-Spades} and Drolet was still safe, but the {2-Clubs} fell on the river to give Nguyen the flush and send Drolet out in 17th.
