Philippe Ktorza - 4th Place
Philippe Ktorza - 4th Place

Philippe Ktorza open-jammed for 450,000 on the button, Fabian Quoss called in the small blind, and Marvin Rettenmaier re-shipped from the big blind. Quoss checked his cards one last time, then folded.

Ktorza: {a-Clubs}{7-Spades}
Rettenmaier: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}

The flop fell {6-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{6-Hearts}, prompting Quoss to say, "Guess what I folded."

The turn and river came {4-Hearts}, {q-Diamonds} respectively, and Ktorza was eliminated.

Rettenmaier turned his attention to Quoss, who said, "Quads."

The two shared a laugh, and then the three remaining players shook Ktorza's hand before he exited the tournament area.

The Germans Do Battle Again

[user101598] • Level 23: 15,000-30,000, 4,000 ante

Fabian Quoss raised to 80,000 out of the small blind, and Marvin Rettenmaier defended the big blind. The flop fell {7-Spades}{j-Spades}{10-Diamonds}, and Quoss opted to check. Rettenmaier fired 86,000, and Quoss called.

The turn was another ten - the {10-Clubs} - and Quoss checked again. Rettenmaier tossed out 168,000, and Quoss tank-called.

The river was the {3-Hearts}, and Quoss checked a final time. Rettenmaier checked behind, turning over {k-Spades}{j-Hearts} for jacks and tens with a king kicker, and Quoss flipped over {k-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} for the same hand.

"Booooooooooooooooooring," Quoss sighed.

Three-Way Action

Chad_Holloway

Fabian Quoss opened for 60,000 under the gun and received calls from Marvin Rettenmaier and Philippe Ktorza on the button and big blind respectively. All three players then checked the {8-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{A-Clubs} flop, the {9-Spades} turned, and Ktorza led out for 86,000.

Both his opponents called, and then all three players returned to checking on the {6-Clubs} river. Ktorza was first to show and tabled {5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}, which was behind the {10-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} of Quoss. Unfortunately for them both, Rettenmaier revealed {A-Spades}{10-Spades} for a pair of aces to beat the both.

Quoss Takes From Rettenmaier

[user101598]

Marvin Rettenmaier opened to 62,000 from under the gun, Fabian Quoss defended his big blind, and the flop fell {5-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}. Quoss check-called a 76,000-chip bet from Rettenmaier, and the turn brought the {a-Diamonds}.

Quoss checked again, Rettenmaier fired 146,000, and Quoss tank-called.

The {2-Hearts} completed the board, Quoss checked again, and Rettenmaier unhappily checked behind. He opened {k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} for king-high, and Quoss turned over {q-Hearts}{7-Clubs} for a pair of queens.

Sorel Mizzi Eliminated in 5th Place (€74,800)

Sorel Mizzi (Day 2) - 5th Place

Sorel Mizzi opened to 60,000 in first position, Fabian Quoss three-bet to 100,000 on his direct left, and the action folded back to Mizzi, who called.

The dealer fanned {4-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}, and Mizzi checked. Quoss continued, tossing out four red T25,000 chips, and Mizzi went into the tank.

"All in," he muttered after a minute or so, making it 470,000 total.

"Call," Quoss said immediately, turning over {k-Hearts}{j-Clubs}.

Mizzi was very much alive with {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}, and the {a-Hearts} on the turn gave him two extra outs to make a better full house. The river was red, but the {7-Hearts} was a brick, and Mizzi was eliminated.

He wished the table luck, and Quoss raked in a massive, 1.2 million-chip pot.

Marcin Wydrowski Eliminated in 6th Place (€55,500)

Chad_Holloway
Marcin Wydrowski - 6th
Marcin Wydrowski - 6th

Amazingly we've just witnessed three eliminations in less than five minutes. This time it was Marcin Wydrowski, who follow Jason Mercier out the door in the very next hand.

It happened when action folded to Wydrowski in the small blind and he splashed in a bunch of chips. It was technically a raise to 210,000, but given he only had 90,000 or so behind it represented a shove. Germany's Marvin Rettenmaier squeezed out his cards in the big blind, announced that he was all in, and Wydrowski committed the rest of his chips.

Showdown
Rettenmaier: {K-Hearts}{Q-Spades}
Wydrowski: {A-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}

Wydrowski got it in good, but that wouldn't matter as the {K-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} flop hit Rettenmaier hard with trips. Wydrowski remained seated until the dealer burned and turned the {5-Hearts}, which left him drawing dead. As the {J-Hearts} was being run out on the river for good measure, Wydrowski was shaking hands with his opponent and exiting the tournament in sixth place.
