In a battle of the short stacks, Thomas Cristobal emerged victorious by eliminating Thierry Gogniat. The Frenchman defended out of the blinds and got the rest in against Cristobal on the flop .
Cristobal, who won some chips the hand before, had Gogniat slightly covered. It was reverse domination for Gogniat, who was outflopped by Cristobal, and the turn and river put the final nail in Gogniat's coffin.
After finishing 19th in the same tournament two years ago, the Frenchman now finished in 20th place.
