EPT Prague: Lacay takes his leave
Ludovic Lacay is out! The French player, second in chips at the start of play, just came over to media row to describe the details of his elimination, in three key hands.
First, he found himself pot committed with K-J against 9-9 - "He flopped a nine, I flopped a king." Then there was a huge three-way coup, where Lacay was a massive pre-flop favourite with K-K against Dan Drescher's J-J and Alexander Andermatt's 9-9, but, "He turned a jack."
The final blow came when Lacay shoved from the cut off with A-8s and the big blind called with K-Qh. There were two hearts on the board and the executioner's axe fell on the river. Lacay won't be going to back-to-back final tables.
