Anton Yakuba

Anton Yakuba limped in on the button and Adrian Mateos checked his option. The flop came {9-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{2-Spades} and Mateos checked to Yakuba who bet 45,000. Mateos check-raised to 140,000 and Yakuba called.

The turn was the {4-Diamonds} and Mateos announced a bet of 265,000. Yakuba still called and the {a-Clubs} completed the board. Mateos ripped all in, putting Yakuba to the test for his last 710,000 chips. Yakuba burned through a couple of time extensions before dropping in a call.

Mateos turned over {4-Spades}{2-Diamonds} for two pair which brought a "you win" out of Yakuba's mouth. Yakuba was forced to show his {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} before they went into the muck and Mateos earned the victory. Yakuba was forced to settle for second place but will still take home over €128,000.

A full recap of the tournament will be posted shortly.
