Action folded around to Dan Smith in the small blind and he eyed up Jim McCrink's stack in the big. Eventually Smith tossed out a handful of black T100,00 chips and put the pressure on his opponent. McCrink squeezed out his cards, stacked his chips, and then slid them into the pot.

McCrink: {9-Clubs}{9-Spades}
Smith: {K-Hearts}{8-Hearts}

McCrink woke up with a decent pair and was out in front, but the {A-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{6-Clubs} flop made things interesting as it gave Smith the nut-flush draw. The anticipation was intense around the Main Stage as the dealer burned and turned the {4-Hearts}. Smith hit his flush to leave his opponent drawing dead.

After the {K-Diamonds} was put out on the rvier for good measure, McCrink shook hands with Smith and took his leave in eighth place, good for €122,960.
