The action folded around to Jerome L'Hostis on the button, and he moved all in. The two players in the blinds were the short stacks of Jan Dentler and Roger Taieb. Dentler folded but Taieb called for his last ten big blinds, and the hands were turned on their backs.
Taieb was in good shape to secure a double up with L'Hostis having only one over card. But that card hit on the flop when the queen of diamonds was revealed. Frenchman Taieb was unable to get back into the lead as the board completed and was the first player to be eliminated from the final table in 9th place for €53,410.
