Hand #105: Nicolas Dumont limped in and Honglin Jiang raised to 650,000. Dumont limp-raised to 2,200,000 and Jiang moved all in for 10,075,000 to pick up an instant call by Dumont.

Honglin Jiang: {6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}
Nicolas Dumont: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}

"I have sixes," Jiang said while turning around to his sister on the rail.

The board came {K-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{3-Spades} and Jiang was eliminated in second place for €434,000. He immediately walked over to shake hands with the words "congratulations." Jiang recorded his best ever cash and jumped into the top 10 of New Zealand's all-time money list, while Dumont becomes the first ever French EPT Main Event in Monte-Carlo, and the 10th ever Frenchman to claim the elusive title and trophy.

A recap of today's action is to follow.
