Benjamin Pollak Eliminated in 5th Place ($203,680)

Webjoker • Level 16: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante
Benjamin Pollak

Hand 43: The action folded to Byron Kaverman in the small blind and he moved all in with {A-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}. The pressure was on Benjamin Pollak in the big blind and he didn't have much of a decision, he called quickly with the {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades}.

The flop came {J-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{2-Spades}, which did nothing. The {K-Spades} on the turn didn't either but the {6-Spades} on the river, however, meant it was all over for Pollak.

The Frenchman, who had an amazing 2017 where he earned $4,979,065 to get to $7,879,762 in tournament earnings lifetime, finished in 5th place for $203,680. The remaining 4 players are guaranteed $260,260 from here on out.
