Julio Sanchez

With 980,000 left, Julio Sanchez open-shoved from under the gun. To his direct left, Arron Fletcher called and the other players quickly went out of the way.

Julio Sanchez: {10-Clubs}{10-Spades}
Arron Fletcher: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}

The {8-Spades}{2-Spades}{2-Hearts} flop was save for Sanchez, but the {A-Clubs} on the turn was a nightmare for the Spaniard. Sanchez now needed one of his remaining two tens to stay in the tournament.

"Diez! Diez! Diez!" Sanchez chanted, and his rail quickly chimed in. It wasn't a diez on the river but an ocho, the {8-Diamonds}, ending the start-of-the-day chipleader's run in 6th place. Sanchez takes home 275,000 MAD, around €25,684, back to Spain.
