Vincent Jacques Eliminated in 2nd Place ($320,913)

Vincent Jacques

Vincent Jacques didn't have a lot to work with when he re-raised preflop, putting his last 315,000 chips into the pot after Praz Bansi had made it 225,000 to go. Bansi made a quick call and Jacques' tournament life was on the line once more.

Bansi: {a-Spades}{j-Spades}
Jacques: {a-Clubs}{8-Spades}

Bansi paired his jack on a flop of {q-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}, but in the spirit of this final table, he couldn't get away without a sweat when the {8-Diamonds} fell on the turn. However, the {2-Clubs} came on the river giving Bansi the best hand and every chip in play.
