The Bubble Hath Burst!

Renaud Desferet was the first player to act before the flop and he shipped all in for 72,000. Tom Alner called from the next seat over and it folded around to Michael Benvenuti who moved all in over the top.

Alner was contemplating for his tournament life and ultimately decided to release his cards. The hands were then turned over to find Desferet in trouble.

Desferet: {A-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}
Benvenuti: {A-Hearts}{k-Hearts}

The flop brought good tidings for Desferet, as it came ten-high with {10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}. The {5-Hearts} rolled off on the turn and Desferet would need to dodge a king on the river to double up. The dealer pounded the table and produced the river.

The {K-Diamonds}!

The players and media members gathered around the table all let out a gasp as the bubble burst. Everyone still in the tournament is guaranteed a payday of at least €8,000.
