Hand 1

Mikita Badziakouski limped in from the small blind and Jean-Noel Thorel checked in the big blind.

On the {K-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{4-Spades} flop, Badziakouski bet 24,000 and Thorel called before doing so again for another 54,000 on the {A-Hearts} turn. Badziakouski then bet the {2-Diamonds} river for 85,000 and Thorel called.

Badziakouski sheepishly turned over {9-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} for a bluff and Thorel scooped the pot with {K-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}.

Hand 2

Down to 100,000, Badziakouski raised to 60,000 from the button and Sam Greenwood moved all in from the big blind, Badziakouski called it off.

Mikita Badziakouski: {Q-Hearts}{J-Hearts}
Sam Greenwood: {J-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}

On a flop of {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}, Greenwood improved and Badziakouski said "an interesting flop." The {10-Hearts} turn made things even more spicy with trips versus straight and flush draw. A blank {4-Clubs} on the river failed to improve Badziakouski and he was eliminated in third place for €99,530.

Thorel will start the battle one-versus-one with a slight chip advantage. The duo has €156,200 locked up and plays for a first-place payout of €226,600.
