Aurelien Guiglini Eliminated in 14th Place (€32,000)

Homer • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Aurelien Guiglini
Aurelien Guiglini

While Gulyy was seeing his dreams die on the outer table, Aurelien Guiglini was moving all in against Jeffrey Hakim, the latter calling in a nail-biting flip.

Hakim: {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades}
Guiglini: {A-Hearts}{10-Spades}

The flop came {K-Clubs}{J-Spades}{7-Hearts} and the Frenchman picked up a gutshot to go with his pair outs but the {5-Spades} couldn't improve him on the turn. The {5-Hearts} river bricked Guiglini a second time and he busted out in 14th place.

The silver lining? Even though he busted just 30 seconds after Gulyy, he's managed to get an extra €5,000 after making the pay jump.

[Removed:4] opened to 100,000 from late position and a short-stack Yury Gulyy moved all in for 475,000 behind him. Folded back to the German who made some calculations and then threw in the call.

Gulyy: {J-Clubs}{J-Spades}
Rudelitz: {A-Hearts}{6-Clubs}

Gulyy's son Andrey looked on anxiously from the rail but the flop came with a bullet, {5-Diamonds}{A-Spades}{7-Hearts} and Gulyy couldn't catch one of the two remaining knaves in the deck on the {9-Spades} turn or {7-Spades} river.

Some for Andre

Shamus • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Action has slowed once more as we approach the last 15 minutes of Level 27, after which the dinner break will come. Just now a series of smallish pots on the outer table was interrupted by an interesting hand between Remi Castaignon and Cyril Andre which produced a little extra action.

The hand began with a 100,000 raise from the button by Castaignon and a call by Andre from the big blind. Both checked the {9-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{6-Clubs} flop, then Andre led at the {6-Spades} board-pairing turn for 125,000 and Castaignon called.

The river brought the {8-Clubs}. Andre checked this time, and when Castaignon bet 375,000, Andre called fairly quickly, and Castaignon tabled his {Q-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} for queens and eights. Andre then showed his {J-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} — he'd rivered a straight — and claimed the pot.

Jean Pierre Petroli has won several pots this level. The most recent one was against [Removed:4], the German tanked for several minutes on the river of a {9-Hearts}{10-Spades}{9-Spades}{K-Clubs}{A-Clubs} board before eventually folding to Petroli's all in bet (650,000).

Eilert Eilertsen Eliminated in 16th Place (€27,000)

Shamus • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Eilert Eilertsen - 16th place
Eilert Eilertsen - 16th place

While the short stacks over on the feature table keep open-shoving and getting no callers — Pascal Aznar and Aurelien Guiglini in particular have done so multiple times — Eilert Eilertsen found himself down to just a few big blinds on the outer table after losing that preflop all-in to Romeo Robert. And just now Eilertsen was forced to commit those last chips himself in a hand versus Remi Castaignon.

Following a Castaignon open for 100,000 from middle position, Jean Pierre Petroli spent a long while eyeing Eilertsen's short stack of 230,000 before folding his hand. Eilertsen then checked his cards and put his remaining chips forward, and when it folded back to Castaignon he quickly called.

Eilertsen had {A-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} and Castaignon {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}. The {7-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} flop and {10-Diamonds} turn provided no ace for Eilertsen, but did add a flush draw. But the river was the {K-Clubs}, and the Norwegian was eliminated in 16th.

Red Eilert, Red Eilert, it's a Catastrophe

Homer • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Robert Romeo opened to 110,000 preflop from late position and Eilert Eilertsen moved all in from the big blind, Robert instantly called off his 805,000 stack.

Romeo: {J-Hearts}{J-Spades}
Eilertsen: {6-Clubs}{6-Spades}

The Norwegian was in massive trouble and couldn't catch the six to save him on the {K-Hearts}{4-Spades}{8-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{4-Hearts} board. He's now our short stack.

Something's Gotta Give

Homer • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

It's getting exceedingly tight here in Deauville, the chip counts are really beginning to bunch up. On the feature table, five out of the eight players are now below the 20 big blind mark.

We'll be surprised if we don't see a spate of exits happening before too soon.

Andre the Not So Giant

Homer • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Glen Cymbaluk had fired 180,000 on a flop of {10-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{4-Spades} after Cyril Andre had checked but the latter made the call to see a {Q-Diamonds} on the turn. Andre checked and Cymbaluk opted to check behind to see the {8-Spades} on the river.

Andre led out for 240,000 and Cymbaluk snap-called with {4-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} having elicited a bluff from the Frenchman's missed drawing hand that was {K-Clubs}{J-Clubs}.

River Revives Romeo

Shamus • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Romeo Robert
Romeo Robert

The blue-hoodied Belgian Robert Romeo open-raised all in from the cutoff seat for 495,000, and after getting a count the cowboy-hat wearing Glen Cymbaluk of Canada called from the button. The blinds stepped aside, Romeo revealed his {J-Spades}{J-Clubs}, and Cymbaluk turned up {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}.

The flop came {5-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{K-Clubs} and Romeo's jacks were still best. Then the {Q-Clubs} fell on the turn, earning an appreciative tap of the side of the table from Cymbaluk as Romeo's tourney prospects suddenly appeared grim.

The dealer burned a card and delivered the river… the {J-Hearts}! Romeo had survived with trip jacks, and play continued for the 16 remaining players.
