Dario Sammartino - 6th Place

Hand #93: Charlie Carrel moved in from the small blind, and Dario Sammartino folded.

Hand #94: Andrey Andreev raised to 200,000 under the gun, and Carrel called from the button. Check-check on the {j-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{a-Hearts}, and Andreev check-called 100,000 on the {4-Spades} turn. They both checked the {5-Diamonds}, and Andreev showed {q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for a missed straight. Carrel had {k-Hearts}{j-Hearts}.

Hand #95: Carrel raised to 125,000 in the cutoff, and Sammartino shoved on the button for 975,000. Carrel called.

Carrel: {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}
Sammartino: {k-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

The board ran out {3-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{9-Hearts}, and Sammartino was left with merely king-high, not enough to best the two eights.

So ends a remarkable run for Sammartino at EPT 11 Grand Final. Of the four biggest events, the High Roller, two Super High Rollers, and the main, Sammartino put together deep runs in three of them. He took the chip lead into the final day of the €100,000 Super High Roller and ultimately finished fourth for €709,500. In the main event, he took 17th for €51,350. This score pushes him past €1,000,000 in cashes at the festival.
