Jonathan Azoulay Eliminated in Fifth Place (HK $75,000)

Jonathan Azoulay

Pre-flop, Jonathan Azoulay made a raise to 200,000 and Tom Chou re-raised to a total of 500,000. With just 150,000 or so behind, Jonathan didn't have much choice except to make the call and we were in for a showdown:

Tom: {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}
Jonathan: {a-Diamonds}{3-Spades}

Tom was in the lead with pocket queens and Jonathan was basically looking for an ace to stay alive.

However, it did not come as the board ran out {9-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}.

We are now down to four after the Frenchman's exit. He still gets plenty of consolation -- HK $75,000 in prize money for his fifth place finish.
