Before the blinds went up, Joris Ruijs opened to 60,000 in early position, Yazan Mdanat flatted in the cutoff, and Igor Pihela moved all in on the button for his stack of approximately 600,000. Ruijs called and Mdanat folded.

Joris Ruijs: {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}
Igor Pihela: {q-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}

Pihela ran into the cowboys, and although the {q-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{9-Spades} flop gave a bit of hope, the {6-Hearts} turn and {6-Diamonds} river completed the board to eliminate the Estonian Day 1 chipleader in eighth place for €16,560, while the Dutch Ruijs' good fortune continued as he added to his chip lead shortly after he pulled the €100,000 bounty.
