Jose Manuel Gonzalez received a walk and Romain Lewis was then forced all-in out of the blinds with Pedro Marques and Gonzalez sticking around. The two active players checked the {j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} flop and {j-Clubs} turn. Gonzalez bet the {6-Spades} river for 500,000 and Marques folded.

Gonzalez revealed the {9-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} and Lewis was sweating his cards, as he had been at risk blind. The Frenchman first revealed the {a-Hearts} and it was followed by the {10-Diamonds} river to send Lewis to the rail in 6th place for €69,930.

An extra day will determine the winner of the 2021 PokerStars EPT Prague €2,200 Eureka High Roller. After nearly sixteen hours on the previous day, 181 Day 1 survivors were whittled down to the final six out of a field of 1,149 entries. They will be battling for the lion's share of the €2,206,080 prize pool as of 12.30 pm local time and have €69,930 locked up for the efforts thus far.

Chip leader heading into the unscheduled Day 3 In the King's Casino at the Hilton Hotel Prague is Spain's Jose Manuel Gonzalez with 17,525,000, good enough for 44 big blinds. Pedro Marques is the only other big stack and has 12,000,000 at his disposal while four players are on severe short stacks. That includes Ermanno Di Nicola (2,200,000), Nicolas Vayssieres (1,375,000), Thomas Lhomme (975,000), and 2021 WSOP bracelet winner Romain Lewis (425,000).

Especially Lewis will have to hope for yet another miracle after surviving on fumes for an extended period last night and has a shade more than one big blind left. With significant pay jumps for every knockout, the start of the day could be a very tense affair. There are 18:31 minutes left in level 35 at blinds of 200,000 / 400,000 and a 400,000 big blind ante.
