Michael Mizrachi raised to 8,500 from the cutoff only to find short stack Michael Schwartz announce a three-bet to 29,000 from the small blind. In the big blind, Joe Hachem went into the tank for about a minute.

"What are you going to do?" asked Hachem to with Mizrachi with a smile.

"Depends on what you do," Mizrachi quipped back.

Another twenty seconds passed.

"I fold," announced Hachem. Mizrachi then dipped into his stack and pulled out enough chips to call.

The flop came down {Q-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{2-Hearts} and Schwartz moved his last 11,500 into the center of the table.

"May the Schwartz be with you," said Mizrachi, an obvious Mel Brooks fan, as he tossed in calling chips.

Schwartz: {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{7-Hearts}
Mizrachi: {10-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{6-Spades}{4-Clubs}

Schwartz was well ahead on the turn, but Mizrachi picked up some outs when he paired up on the {8-Diamonds} turn. The {9-Spades} on the river sealed the deal, as Mizrachi's straight made Schwartz the second victim of this final table.

Mizrachi's stack is now well over 300,000 while Schwartz has exited the tournament room €15,357 richer.
