Thomas Muehloecker

After a few hands without any showdown, Thomas Muehloecker had built his stack to around 1,200,000 while Julian Stuer kept either raising or open-shoving into both short stacks. Then, Stuer raised to 100,000 and Muehloecker three-bet shoved out of the small blind for 24 big blinds. John Juanda folded and Stuer called.

Julian Stuer: {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}
Thomas Muchloecker: {J-Spades}{9-Spades}

The flop of {7-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} failed to improve Muehloecker, and he was in need of an eight after the {6-Diamonds} turn, as Stuer had improved to a straight. Instead, it was the blank {7-Diamonds} and Muehloecker was eliminated in 3rd place for €471,400. Juanda has at least €683,900 guaranteed and has to overcome a more than 6-1 lead of Stuer to claim the title.
