Sebastian Pauli opened with preflop and action folded around to Marko Neumann in the small blind. He cut out a three-bet to an unknown amount and action came back to Pauli who made a four-bet. Neumann five-bet shipped all in for about 690,000 and Pauli instantly called.
Pauli was out in front with his pocket aces and stayed that way through a run out. Pauli scored the elimination and brought his stack up to 1.66 million. Neumann, on the other hand, was eliminated from play in 23rd place.
