Under the gun plus two, Timo Pfutzenreuter raised it up to 100,000 with {Q-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}. Marko Neumann on the button with {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts} made the call. Frei Dilling in the big blind with {J-Clubs}{10-Hearts} came along for the ride as well.


Dilling checked from the big blind and Pfutzenreuter made a 155,000 continuation into the 365,000 pot. Neumann made the call, Dilling folded.

The {8-Diamonds} on the turn was an interesting card to hit. Pfutzenreuter now had a gut shot and flush draw, but he was drawing dead. With the pot now already containing 675,000 chips, Pfutzenreuter bet 365,000.

Neumann, who started the hand as the shortest stack, looked like he had a tough decision, and called after a minute of thinking.

The {6-Spades} on the river was a total brick. The commentators expected Pfutzenreuter to give up with his aggression. After four minutes of thinking, Pfutzenreuter showed everyone he had other plans though. The young German player bet 785,000.

Neumann checked his cards and put on a little act before he moved all in. Pfutzenreuter instantly folded.

The 3,805,000 went to Neumann who now has 3.8 million.
