Morgan Aceto moved all in for 6,700,000 from the small blind and Yves Sanchez snap-called in the big blind.

Morgan Aceto: {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}
Yves Sanchez: {q-Spades}{j-Clubs}

The flop came {3-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds} giving Sanchez a straight draw. The turn was the {4-Diamonds} but the river was the {a-Clubs} sending Aceto the rail in third place.

The chip leader at the start of the final table, Aceto fell to five big blinds on Day 1a but finished strongly to bag up ahead of Day 2.

The psychology student who discovered poker three years ago finished in second place in the standings heading into the final day.

"I qualified on two months ago," said the 23 year-old, who needed to finish sixth to beat his largest all-time cash and did so in some style, taking home €80,782 after the three-way deal.
