Thorel Gone; Bubble Grows Closer

[user68268] • Level 17: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante
Jean-Noel Thorel (Day 1)

From under the gun, Joao Vieira opened with a raise to 16,000. Jean-Noel Thorel called on the button, and then Gereon Sowa reraised to 56,000 out of the big blind. Vieira folded, but Thorel made the call.

The turn was the {Q-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}, and Sowa bet 100,000. Thorel moved all in for slightly over that amount, and Sowa quickly called the extra little bit. Sowa tabled the {A-Hearts}{K-Spades} for two over cards and a straight draw to the at-risk Thorel's {K-Hearts}{J-Hearts}.

Thorel had flopped the best hand with a pair of jacks, but the turn was the {A-Spades} to put Sowa back in the lead. The river completed the board with the {A-Clubs}, and Thorel was eliminated.
