Wei Huang Eliminated in 2nd Place (€552,056)

KaleGozer • Level 36: 250,000-500,000, 500,000 ante
Wei Huang and Manig Loeser

Wei Huang raised to 1,200,000 with {k-Spades}{8-Clubs} and Manig Loeser defended with {q-Hearts}{8-Hearts}. The flop came down {j-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{5-Spades} and both players checked.

Loeser caught exactly what he needed on the {10-Clubs} turn, improving his hand to a queen-high straight. Loeser led out for 1,400,000, Huang shoved all in for 8,025,000, and Loeser snap-called.

The sudden all-in-and-a-call had everyone jumping on their feet and the crowd gathered in anticipation of the upcoming river. Only a queen would save Huang's tournament life, but the {a-Diamonds} came instead and ended the hopes of the Chinese to win their country's first-ever EPT title. Meanwhile, the German rail, including the likes of Rainer Kempe and Koray Aldemir, celebrated their countryman's victory. Loeser ran off to Huang to shake hands and congratulate his opponent who battled him for fifteen hours today.

Huang's tremendous run came to an end in second place, similar to his close friend Haoxiang Wang's accomplishment in the 2018 EPT Barcelona Main Event, and the 34-year old recreational player from Shanghai received the biggest score of his career with €552,056.

With that, Manig Loeser has been crowned the 2019 EPT Monte Carlo Main Event winner! Loeser will take home €603,777 for his accomplishment.
