Julien Nolin did well to reach the final table, but he ran into a cold deck on back-to-back hands and was eliminated in sixth place. After losing nearly 500,000 in chips in a dramatic flip where Nolin’s flopped set lost to a rivered straight, Nolin woke up with pocket queens on the next hand. Nolin’s opening shove was quickly called by Nicolas Laliberte, who held a live ace. Laliberta flopped his ace, sending Nolin to the rail in sixth place.
Nolin will take home $830 for his deep run.
