Dermont Blain - 5th Place

Hand #143: Brian Roberts had the button. He raised to 160,000, the minimum allotted raise. In the small blind, Elio Fox reraised to 450,000. His three-bet went through uncontested and he won the pot.

Hand #144: Elio Fox had the button. Chris Moorman raise to 175,000 from under the gun. Moritz Kranich reraised to 425,000 from the big blind. Moorman folded and Kranich won the pot.

Hand #145: Dermot Blain had the button. He raised all in and won the pot.

Hand #146: Moritz Kranich had the button. Dermot Blain raised all in from the cutoff seat. This was the second hand in a row he shoved and once again, no one called.

Hand #147: Chris Moorman had the button. Dermot Blain raised to 175,000 from under the gun. Action folded to Brian Roberts and he asked for a count on Blain's stack. Roberts was in the small blind and reraised to 350,000. Elio Fox folded from the big blind and then Blain reraised all in. Roberts now asked for an exact count on the stack. He found out Blain was all in for 1.76 million.

Roberts spent several minutes in the tank before finally calling it off. He held the {A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} to Blain's {K-Spades}{Q-Hearts}.

The flop was {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} and Roberts was still in front with the better pair. The {9-Hearts} on the turn kept him in the lead and then the {2-Clubs} on the river finished things off.

Blain was eliminated in fifth place and earned a solid payday of €275,000.
