The Pot of The Tournament! Michel Abecassis Eliminated in 7th Place (€19,606)

Michel Abecassis is eliminated

"Are you getting tired of that name yet?" Michael Mizrachi just said jokingly to the announcer after he had raised to 11,000 under the gun. Joe Hachem laughed but folded, and Ville Mattila called.

Michel Abecassis was in the small blind and he moved all in for 48,500. Mizrachi called from the big blind, and the action was back on Mattila.

"I raise pot," Mattila said and slowly but surely he put out a four-bet to 199,000.

"Don't shake now, put it out right," Mizrachi said with a smile as Mattila was struggling a little bit with his chips.

"The staff wants to go home early," Mizrachi added as he decided to make the call after about 30 seconds.

"Big pot," was Mattila's response as Abecassis was awaiting his fate.

The flop brought out {10-Clubs}{2-Spades}{J-Hearts} and Mizrachi moved all in right away. Mattila had 89,500 chips left behind and called creating a massive pot worth 622,500 chips.

Ville Mattila: {A-Spades}{A-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{6-Spades}
Michael Mizrachi: {K-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}
Michel Abecassis: {K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}

Mizrachi was looking for help in order to bust two players, but the turn was no good for him. The {A-Diamonds} came off and Mattila hit his set. The river brought the {8-Hearts} and Mattila took a massive chip lead while Abecassis was eliminated.
