Benjamin Pollak

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.

Benjamin Pollak: {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts}
Matthias Eibinger: {j-Clubs}{10-Clubs}

The flop came {6-Hearts}{3-Spades}{3-Hearts} and Pollak still held a dominating lead with his ace-high. The {a-Hearts} on the turn left Eibinger drawing dead to the {2-Diamonds} on the river as Pollak doubled his way back into contention.
