Benjamin Pollak

Bartlomiej Machon raised to 120,000 from the hijack and, for the second hand in-a-row, Jean-Noel Thorel moved all in for 1,790,000. Benjamin Pollak was in the small blind and he just called. The big blind folded and action was back on Machon who moved all-in for 3,300,000 himself and Pollak snap-called.

Bartlomiej Machon: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}
Jean-Noel Thorel: {7-Diamonds}{7-Spades}
Benjamin Pollak: {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}

The flop came {a-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{3-Hearts} giving Pollak top set. The turn was the {10-Clubs}, and with no players holding a club both Thorel and Machon were drawing dead, and the river was the {j-Clubs}.

The double elimination brought the number of players remaining to 17, negating the need for hand-for-hand play with all remaining players guaranteed €38,060.
