In the first hand back from the break, action folded to Vladimir Troyanovskiy on the button and he raised to 500,000, essentially moving all in. Piotr Franczak, who if you recall made a name for himself at the EPT Malta after notching several big score, was in the big blind and wasted little time in calling off for 340,000.
Franczak woke up with the goods, and he was primed to double even after the flop. Unfortunately for him, disaster struck when the dealer burned and turned the . Franczak still had outs, but he missed as the blanked on the river.
"Oh my god, I had a three," someone at the table admitted after the hand. "It was a one outer."
It was a particularly brutal beat for Franczak, who missed out on a minimum €199,620 payday.
