Final Table Action

Following the elimination of Jorryt van Hoof in ninth place, the final table of eight was confirmed with Ioannis Angelou-Konstas holding the chip lead with nearly three million in chips.

The action was fast and furious at the final table. Thomas Muehloecker sent both Jack Sinclair and Dario Sammartino to the rail in a crazy three-way all in. Muehloecker held pocket aces against the nines of Sinclair and the jacks of Sammartino. A Jack on the flop vaulted the Italian into the lead, but an ace on the river sent them both to the rail.

There was then another three-way all in between Lucas Reeves holding ace-queen and Alexey Savenkov with pocket sevens, but they were both behind to the big stack of Lukas Matthias Nowakowski who had picked up kings. The big pocket pair held and after Muehloecker finished off Akseli Paalanen, suddenly play was three-handed.

With a 56-big blind average, the three battled away as Nowakowski moved into the lead. Muehloecker was sliding and eventually succumbed to Nowakowski, calling off his remaining stack with two pair only for the German to have rivered trips.

At this stage, Nowakowski held 5.1m in chips to Angelou-Konstas' 3.7m, but the pair played one hand where Konstas took the lead, now with 4.8m to his opponent's 4.1m. The two then agreed to a deal, with Angelou-Konstas taking home €172,188 and the title of Irish Open Online High Roller champion.
