From first position, Jean-Noel Thorel opened for 18,000. Two positions over sat Adrian Mateos on the button and he three-bet to 50,000. Both blinds released but Thorel instantly announced all in. Mateos wasn't overly excited calling it off, but did reluctantly toss in some chips to call.
The board ran out . Thorel turned out to have 278,000, just more than what Mateos had. After finishing runner-up in yesterday's tournament for €260,300, now no spot on the final table for the Spanish EPT Grand Final champion.
At the same time, over on the other table, Sergi Reichax lost his last chips. Just like that, down to 8 and a final table.
