Fabio Sperling Eliminated in 2nd Place (€184,820)

Webjoker • Level 31: 60,000-120,000, 20,000 ante
Fabio Sperling

Fabio Sperling, with {A-Spades}{Q-Spades} on the button, raised to 260,000 playing 3.6 million total. Hakim Zoufri found {7-Hearts}{7-Spades} in the big blind and studied the stack of his opponent. He eventually decided to three-bet to 935,000.

Sperling contemplated what to do for just a bit, and announced all-in. Zoufri sighed for a second before he called.

A classic race was underway, a race with just a few possible outcomes. Unless a chop would occur, either Sperling would be back in the race or Zoufri would end it all after only half an hour of play on Day 5.

The flop came {3-Spades}{6-Clubs}{K-Clubs}, not doing anything for either.

With the {9-Spades} hitting the turn, Sperling had a ton of outs all of the sudden. Sperling was looking for an ace, queen or spade to double up.

He got none of those. Instead the {4-Hearts} hit and the German player living in the United Kingdom made his exit in second place for €184,820.
