It took awhile but the bubble has finally burst!

It happened when action folded to Timothy Adams in the hijack and he shoved for his last 665,000. The next three players all folded to Erik Seidel in the big blind, he looked down at his cards and then made a quick call.

Seidel: {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}
Adams: {k-Spades}{9-Spades}

Interestingly, Seidel had pocket queens the hand before when he shoved and swiped the blinds. According to the PokerNews Odds Calculator, Seidel was a 67.70% favorite to win the hand while Adams would come from behind 31.92% of the time.

The {2-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} flop was kind to Adams as it paired his king and made him an 86.67% favorite. Seidel's chances of winning the hand dropped to 13.33%, but it went up to 25% when the {10-Clubs} turn gave him a flush draw. Much to Adams' dismay, and the relief of the other players, the {3-Clubs} spiked on the river to give Seidel the said flush. Adams exited empty handed in eighth place while the remaining seven players are now guaranteed at least €128,515.
