Steve Dannenmann Eliminated in 12th Place (€52,416)

Steve Dannenmann busts out in 12th place.

Action folded around to Steve Dannenmann's button and he moved all in for his last roughly 130,000. Joseph Cheong snapped him off from the big blind and showed {J-Clubs}{J-Hearts}.

Unfortunately for Dannenmann, he held an under pair and his {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades} were in need of dire help to score him a double up. The flop came down {Q-Spades}{A-Clubs}{8-Spades} and was of no help to the 2005 WSOP Main Event Runner-Up.

The {4-Spades} hit the turn.

"There's always a sweat," said Cheong as Dannenmann called for a spade.

Alas, the {10-Clubs} fell on the river to eliminate Dannenmann in 12th place. Cheong stood up to shake Dannenmann's hand and Dannenmann said "You always fold jacks! Jacks are a bad hand!" with a smile.

The ever jovial Dannenmann will take home €52,416 for his efforts here in Cannes.
