Benjamin Pollak has been grinding one of the shorter stacks ever since the final two tables were formed. He found one double up when he picked up aces and he was looking for another one. Pollak opened to 1,000,000 from under the gun and Matthias Eibinger shoved all in from the big blind. Pollak thought for a moment and then called off his stack of 7,700,000.
The flop came and Pollak still held a dominating lead with his ace-high. The on the turn left Eibinger drawing dead to the on the river as Pollak doubled his way back into contention.
