Working with a 9BB stack, Alex Mostafavi raised to 250,000 in mid-position and Bernard Guigon just decided to call in the big blind.
Guigon tapped the felt and Mostafavi quickly moved all-in. The players, media and fans on the rail all jostled for position as they sensed an instant call from the chip leader. But Guigon likes to take his time and take his time he did.
After a few minutes of dead unease, the silence was permeated with the words, "I call," and when he turned over his hand Mostafavi tapped the table and everyone knew he was in trouble.
The turn was kind to Mostafavi as it gave him some more outs , but he desperately needed the ace or seven to keep his very slim EPT Grand Final hopes alive.
That's it! We have our final eight and Alex Mostafavi is not going to sitting amongst them when the action starts at 13:30 (CET) tomorrow. Bernard Guigon is going to be the chip leader and we will bring you all of those exact counts as soon as the furore dies down.
