Event 21: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Jean-Louis Santoni Eliminated in 7th Place ($56,453)

Jean-Louis Santoni - 7th place

Jean-Louis Santoni opened from under the gun for 65,000, and action folded around to Noah Vaillancourt in the hijack who made it 135,000. Santoni completed the call and both players saw a {4-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} flop. It was here that Santoni checked and Vaillancourt fired out 80,000. Santoni immediately moved all in and was called by Vaillancourt.

Vaillancourt: {A-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}
Santoni: {Q-Diamonds}{j-Spades}

Santoni possessed the lead with his pair of jacks, but any diamond or ace on the turn or the river would put the hand in Vaillancourt's favor. Indeed a diamond did fall as the table was shown the {3-Diamonds} on the turn and Vaillancourt grabbed hold of a nut flush. The meaningless {A-Hearts} fell on the river and Santoni was eliminated.
