Alain Alinat Eliminated in 2nd Place ($82,312)

Alain Alinat

It's all over for Alain Alinat after he got the last of his chips in preflop. He opened to 160,000, Tu Dao three-bet and then the two players kept raising each other until all of Alinat's 525,000 chips were in the middle.

Tu Dao:   
Alain Alinat:   

Alinat was in with the best hand but failed to hold against Tu Dao after she spiked a nine on the     flop. A   on the turn gave Alinat a flush draw and his rail called for a "diamond" but sadly for the Frenchman the river didn't oblige, with the   landing instead.

Congratulations go to Alinat on finishing runner-up in the event, who will go home $82,312 better off as a result.
