Erik Seidel - 2nd Place
Erik Seidel - 2nd Place

Erik Seidel peeked down at his hole cards on the button and open-shipped all in for his last 2,140,000. Vitaly Lunkin calmly stacked his new chips from the double up and waited a moment before looking at his cards. He took a glance and casually announced a call.

Seidel: {K-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}
Lunkin: {A-Clubs}{5-Hearts}

Lunkin was leading at the moment with ace-high and he seized a death grip on the hand when the {6-Spades}{A-Spades}{6-Clubs} flop hit the felt. The {8-Clubs} fell on fourth street and Seidel was drawing dead heading to the river. The two competitors shook hands as the meaningless {4-Spades} finished off the board.

Seidel will take home €557,100 in second-place prize money while Lunkin has officially been crowned the EPT 10 Barcelona Super High Roller champion!
