Allan Sannier Is The Bubble
Oleksii Khoroshenin limped in from the small blind. Allan Sannier raised to 19,000 in the big blind and Khoroshenin peeled a flop.
The flop was and Khoroshenin checked. Sannier bet 16,000, Khoroshenin put in a big check-raise to 57,000, Sannier shoved for 180,000 and Khoroshenin instantly called to put Sannier at risk.
Sannier had flopped two pair, but found himself in dire straits as Khoroshenin had flopped a bigger two pair. Sannier needed an eight or running chop cards to survive. It wasn't meant to be for the qualifier, as the on the turn and on the river sealed his fate.
Sannier got into the Super High Roller by finishing second in last night's satellite for this tournament. Although, not exactly, as the tournament only had one seat for the winner. Sannier got paid €22,750 in cash for finishing second, almost worth a seat, but still a cash prize. Instead of cashing out, Sannier elected to pony up the rest of the money and buy himself into the tournament. Unfortunately, his exciting run ended on the bubble, leaving him empty handed for the journey.
The nine remaining finalists are guaranteed at least €46,180 each.
