From the hijack, Stefan Schillhabel opened to 185,000, leaving himself just 36,000 behind. His neighbor Markus Durnegger called from the button. Big blind Ihar Soika, who won this event back in 2014 earning €747,200 after beating Jason Mercier heads up, tanked for a bit, used one of his time banks, and moved in for 718,000. Schillhabel called, Durnegger folded after having received a count.

Stefan Schillhabel: {A-Clubs}{8-Hearts}
Ihar Soika: {K-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}

The flop of {J-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{9-Hearts} gave Schillhabel some hope and that only increased with the {Q-Hearts} on the turn. The {K-Hearts} on the river completed his flush and Soika's rivered set went face down into the muck.
