LisaY • Level 42: 1,000,000-2,000,000, 2,000,000 ante
Freek Scholten

Hand #137: Tom Koral limped and Freek Scholten shoved all in for 20,800,000. When Koral called, they turned over their cards and Scholten saw the bad news.

Tom Koral: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}
Freek Scholten: {q-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}

Koral had trapped with pocket aces and Scholten needed something special to keep him in the game. There was a glimmer of hope on the {9-Spades}{k-Hearts}{10-Spades} flop, with Scholten picking up a gutshot draw. The {4-Diamonds} was of no help to the Dutchman and neither was the {5-Clubs} river.

Scholten narrowly missed out on his first bracelet and received $327,563 for finishing runner up.
