AaronMcBride • Level 36: 2,500,000-500,000, 500,000 ante
Haoxiang Wang

Piotr Nurzynski called on the button with {a-Clubs}{9-Clubs}, and Haoxiang Wang checked his option in the big blind with {k-Spades}{2-Diamonds}. The flop came down {6-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}, and both players hit a pair, but Nurzynski had the lead.

Wang led with a 500,000 bet which Nurzynski called. Wang opted to check on the {7-Clubs} turn, and then called a 2m bet.

The river card was the {4-Diamonds}, and Wang checked once more. Nurzynski moved all in and put maximum pressure on Wang who had no time bank cards left.

With just 30 seconds to make his decision, Wang was undecided, and the clock was rapidly running down. With just two seconds left to act Wang called and saw the bad news.

Wang's head sank as Nurzynski stood from his chair victorious to claim the title.

Wang departs with €1,023,701 after the four-handed deal was agreed, and a $30,000 Platinum Pass to the Bahamas after Nurzynski won the last longer competition.

A full recap of the final day action will be posted later on with Nurzynski's reaction to his win in the record-breaking EPT Barcelona.
