Elimination Artur Martirosian

The action folded to Artur Martirosian in the small blind and he moved all-in for 2,575,000. Michel Dattani glanced at his cards and instantly called.

Artur Martirosian: {q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}
Michel Dattani: {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs}

After the {8-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} flop, Pedro Neves jokingly asked for the ten of diamonds to provide a double sweat. However, the {8-Spades} turn and {a-Clubs} river runout sent the 2021 EPT Sochi Main Event champion to the rail in third place for $677,400.

The tournament is now heads-up between two players from Portugal, ensuring the first PCA Main Event title for their home country and third in a marquee PokerStars event. There will be a short break and deal discussions are very likely.
