Hand #69: Mateos opened the cutoff with a raise to 100,000 and would soon find a whole lot of action behind him.

Small blind Markus Ross had big plans for this hand, as he shoved his stack worth 1,380,000 (27 big blinds) to the middle. Big blind Muhyedine Fares glanced over, didn't even ask how much it was, and called. Mateos knew enough and quickly folded.

Markus Ross: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}
Muhyedine Fares: {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}

Ross was in trouble, and he knew it. The {K-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} flop was one which brought some reason for hope. "Heart or queen. Running hearts." Ross said, "Jack of hearts would be good" he added.

The {8-Spades} on the turn wasn't anything Ross needed, and he was down to just the two remaining queens in the deck to stay alive.

It wasn't happening. The river was the {J-Hearts} Ross had asked the Poker Gods for on the turn. Now it was too late, and it meant four things;

  • Markus Ross was eliminated in 7th place (€174,300);
  • Muhyedine Fares was now the chip leader with 5,235,000 in chips;
  • The remaining six players were guaranteed €233,500;
  • The day was done and the bagging and tagging started for the remaining six players.
