After hours of six-handed play, it took less than a dozen hands to get down to the final three players.

Sylvain Loosli, a 26-year-old poker pro from Toulon, France, was a short-stacked ninja for much of the final table. Unfortunately for him, he made his final push holding QHeart Suit7Club Suit and was caught by Ryan Reiss and his AClub Suit10Heart Suit.

Loosli, who came into the final table as the sixth largest stack, was designated as an 11-2 underdog by Caesars Entertainment. His elimination guaranteed that an American would win this year’s WSOP main event.
