Manuel Mutke Eliminated in 2nd Place ($322,908)

123md • Level 30: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante
Manuel Mutke - 2nd Place

Hand #185: Athanasios Polychronopoulos raised to 250,000 on the button and Manuel Mutke three-bet to 650,000 from the big blind. After a few moments, Polychronopoulos four-bet all in for 4.13 million effective. Mutke snap called for his stack.

Polychronopoulos: {Q-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}
Mutke: {A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}

The flop fell {J-Clubs}{5-Spades}{3-Diamonds}, pairing both players but keeping Mutke well out in front. The {2-Clubs} turn changed nothing, keeping Mutke in excellent shape to double up and take a commanding chip lead. However, the {Q-Clubs} nailed the river and sent Polychronopoulos' rail into absolute pandemonium as their man hit the three-out river and captured his second bracelet.

Mutke earned $322,908 for his runner-up finish.
