Charlie Carrel pushed Dominik Nitsche off pot after pot until he had taken the lead. Then Nitsche limped in from the button and Carrel made it 400,000 to go in the big blind. Nitsche shoved all in for 2,435,000 and Carrel snap called.
"Call, I have aces" he quickly added.
The flop came leaving Nitsche some outs. The on the turn and on the river however didn't fill up his straight, and Nitsche made his exit in 2nd place with just 1 minute left on the clock on the last level of the official structure sheet.
Nitsche had already locked up €139,450 in the 4-handed deal, and had secured himself another €18,562 in the heads-up deal, but the trophy he did not get.
