Level 25 : 25,000/50,000, 5,000 ante

Hossein Ensan & Preben Stokkan

On a {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} board, Hossein Ensan bet 75,000 in the cutoff and Preben Stokkan called on the button after the flop went check/check. The river brought the {9-Diamonds} and Ensan bet 270,000. Stokkan moved in for 945,000 and Ensan called with lightning speed.

Preben Stokkan: {9-Clubs}{7-Clubs}
Hossein Ensan: {9-Spades}{9-Hearts}

All players stared in bewilderment to what just transpired in front of their eyes. All, except for Ensan, who instantly grabbed Stokkan's arm, raised it, then high-fived it. The gesture wasn't ill-intended by Ensan. Stokkan, however, was still processing the incredible one-outer that just ended his tournament life and wasn't really about to cheer along with Ensan.

"Nines kill you, all the time," Ensan said with a smile afterwards. The German from Iranian descent had Stokkan covered and the Norwegian, who finished 2nd in the first €10,300 High Roller earlier this week, now became 8th for €63,000.
