Event #36: $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em

Alexis Bouchiouane Eliminated in 11th Place ($41,775)

• Level 26: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante
Alexis Bouchiouane - 11th place

Alexis Bouchiouane was down around 600,000 when he took his stand, open-shoving from late position. Next door, Mikhail Lakhitov took his time considering before announcing the call, and Bouchiouane was officially at risk. The other folded out of the way, and the cards were on their backs.

Bouchiaoune: {K-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds}
Lakhitov: {A-Spades} {Q-Hearts}

Bouchiaoune was in as good a spot as he could hope for with his cards, but he'd find no help from the dealer. The board ran {5-Clubs} {10-Spades} {6-Spades} {5-Spades} {9-Clubs}, and the ace holds to give Lakhitov the pot. For his efforts over the last three days, the last remaining Frenchman will take home more than $40,000.
