Sander Hauser opened the action with a raise to 250,000 with the {a-Spades}{k-Hearts} and Kimmo Kurko defended the big blind holding the {j-Clubs}{5-Clubs}. The {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{3-Clubs} flop provided the flush draw for Kurko and the top two pair for Hauser. Kurko checked it over to the Italian, who bet 350,000 and earned a call from the Finn.

The {4-Diamonds} turn provided an additional gutshot for Kurko and he checked once more. Hauser bet 700,000 for a little bit more than half the pot. As a result, Kurko moved all-in for 2,800,000 and Hauser snap-called.

The {3-Hearts} on the river missed the double draw of Kurko and he had to settle for third place. According to the deal agreement, he takes home €39,800 and Hauser will enter heads-up with a commanding lead over Ventura Bolet.
