Timothy Adams

Over on the outer table, Timothy Adams raised to 1,200,000 in the cutoff and Matthias Eibinger on the button three-bet all in for nearly 12,000,000. Benjamin Pollak in the small blind gave it some consideration, checked the stacks of both opponents and called. Adams snap-called all in for 10,600,000 and a three-way showdown emerged with the biggest pot of the tournament so far.

Timothy Adams: {K-Hearts}{K-Clubs}
Matthias Eibinger: {Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs}
Benjamin Pollak: {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}

Adams was poised to triple up, but the {Q-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} flop was a disaster for the Canadian. Pollak spiked the one-outer to take the lead with a set of kings, and he held onto it with the {6-Hearts} turn and {A-Diamonds} on the river.

"Sorry Tim," Pollak immediately said. Adams was eliminated in 10th place and Eibinger had to settle for 9th, both receive €71,821 for their efforts. There will now be a short break to set up the official eight-handed final table.
