6.15pm - Samuel Chartier, PokerStars qualifier from Canada, eliminated in seventh place for €178,000.
It was a simple all-in called for Samuel Chartier. The PokerStars qualifier from Canada pushed in with K-T and was called by Finton Gavin who showed A-Q. With less of the drama of Mercier's double up earlier, the board helped neither player coming as it did 7-J-2-J-3 and Chartier was eliminated. Six players remain.
