Andrew Pantling Eliminated in 2nd Place (€842,000)

Happy_Freaked • Level 29: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante
Andrew Pantling - 2nd Place

Steve O'Dwyer raised from the button to 240,000 with {10-Clubs}{8-Hearts} and Andrew Pantling called from the big blind with {K-Spades}{5-Spades}. The flop brought out {8-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{J-Spades} and Pantling check-called 300,000.

On the turn the {4-Spades} hit and Pantling checked again, after which O'Dwyer bet out 600,000. Pantling, who had turned the second nut flush, raised it up to 1,425,000 and O'Dwyer tanked for a while before raising all in. Pantling snap-called the shove, and was in great shape to double up and take a two to one chip lead.

The river turned everything around and sealed the deal as the {8-Clubs} popped up! O'Dwyer rivered quads and knocked Pantling out in second place. Pantling will go home €842,000 richer but the title, the trophy and the biggest prize will go to O'Dwyer.
