Pedro Marques

Down to 7,700,000 and on the button, Pedro Marques moved all-in. Jose Manuel Gonzalez glanced over at the tournament info screen, grabbed into his large stack and splashed a pile in for the call.

Pedro Marques: {k-Spades}{5-Hearts}
Jose Manuel Gonzalez: {a-Hearts}{4-Spades}

A small rail gathered in the corner of the main room to watch the action unfold. Neither player connected with the {j-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} flop and {q-Hearts} turn. Marques still had plenty of outs to stave off elimination but also whiffed the {3-Spades} on the river to bow out in second place.

According to the deal both players cut, Marques takes home €288,750 for his efforts. In the meanwhile, an ecstatic Gonzalez loudly celebrated for the entire room to hear. He secured a payday of €343,750 and the EPT winner's trophy.

A recap of today's action is to follow.
