Nicolas Chouity Busts Before the Break

• Level 21: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Nicolas Chouity

In the final hand before the latest break, Nicolas Chouity has been eliminated from the EPT Barcelona Season 13 Main Event. The Lebanese player led the entire field after Day 2, but two hands at his table did the damage.

First, Chouity was all-in pre-flop with the chance of knocking Mikhail Molchanov out of the tournament but ran his {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs} into Molchanov's {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds} . The board of {K-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} saw Chouity exclaim in frustration: "And I flop a king too; so sick that happens!"

Then, in what would be Chouity's final hand, he moved all-in for 253,00 with {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} and saw his opponent Jose Quintas re-shove for over half a million chips with {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs} , pushing another opponent out of the way and sending the two men to the run out.

The board of {J-Clubs}{J-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{K-Diamonds} saw the demise of Chouity completed, and the man who led with 294 remaining does not make the final fifty.

"It happens." he said, as he moved to the cash desk.
