Alex Bilokur Eliminated in 2nd Place (€295,451)

Alex Bilokur - 2nd Place

Alex Bilokur raised to 80,000 on the button and Laurent Polito reraised to 230,000 from the big blind. With a stack of about 1.25 million to start the hand, Bilokur moved all in. Polito's eyes lit up when he heard those sweat words from Bilokur and he quickly called.

Bilokur: {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}
Polito: {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}

The flop came down {10-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} and Polito's queens stood strong. The {7-Spades} was placed out on the turn, which meant Bilokur needed a nine and a nine only on the river to stay alive.

The river card completed the board with the {8-Diamonds} and Bilokur was officially eliminated — the queens for Polito had done it. Due to the deal struck earlier when heads-up play began, Bilokur took home €295,451, which was actually the larger prize of the two.
