Antoine Saout Eliminated in 2nd Place (€800,000)
In hand number 77 on the final day, Jordan Saccucci raised to 600,000 on the button. Antoine Saout three-bet to 2,000,000 with 9,650,000 behind and Saccucci then moved all-in.
It was somewhat uncharacteristic for the Canadian to do so and Saout mulled it over for a few seconds before he called it off to create a pot of more than 23 million.
Antoine Labat called for a six from the rail but moments later, the flop fell to give Saccucci trips and leave Saout with two outs for a full house or running cards to a straight.
Nothing changed with the turn and the river ended the run of Saout in second place. According to the deal struck by both players, he walks away with a consolation prize of €800,000. Saccucci topped a record-breaking EPT Main Event here in Prague for a top prize of €913,250.
A recap of today's action is to follow.
