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 Saout: {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}
Jordan Saccucci: {a-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}

Antoine Labat called for a six from the rail but moments later, the flop fell {4-Spades}{3-Spades}{3-Hearts} to give Saccucci trips and leave Saout with two outs for a full house or running cards to a straight.

Nothing changed with the {9-Hearts} turn and the {9-Spades} 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.
