KaleGozer • Level 33: 125,000-250,000, 250,000 ante
Manig Loeser and Nicola Grieco

On hand #197 of the final table, more than nine hours after Luis Medina had busted in sixth place, it was Nicola Grieco who shoved all in for 1,475,000 on the button. Manig Loeser was in the big blind and considered calling off the six big blind shove.

"I'm gonna gamble," he said after twenty seconds.

Nicola Grieco: {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}
Manig Loeser: {8-Clubs}{7-Hearts}

Rainer Kempe, who had just won the €25,000 High Roller, came over to support Loeser. The {8-Hearts}{7-Spades}{3-Clubs} flop was as perfect as they'd come for the German high staker, and Grieco got up from his chair. The {j-Diamonds} on the turn sealed it for Loeser, which rendered the {a-Diamonds} on the river moot.

There were plenty of players at risk over the course of nine hours, but finally, one of them was gone from the EPT Main Event. Grieco took home €206,590 for finishing in 5th place.
