Ben Bensimhon limped in and Jakob Miegel checked his option. Both players checked the {4-Spades}{2-Clubs}{6-Spades} flop. Miegel bet 110,000 on the {6-Clubs} turn and Bensimhon called.

The river was the {10-Spades} and Miegel bet 235,000. Bensimhon called again but had to muck when Miegel showed {7-Spades}{6-Diamonds} for trip sixes. With the pot, Miegel has taken the chip lead for the first time in the match.

Heads-up Started

KaleGozer • Level 27: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

After a short break, the heads-up has begun.

Bart Lybaert Eliminated in 3rd Place (€42,308)

KaleGozer • Level 27: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Bart Lybaert
Bart Lybaert

Bart Lybaert open-shoved over 500,000 on the button and Jakob Miegel, who had him slightly covered, moved over the top all in from the small blind.

Bart Lybaert: {A-Clubs}{6-Clubs}
Jakob Miegel: {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}

It's the first time Miegel has been active at this final table; with Ben Bensimhon to his left, the German had folded nearly everything up until this point. Miegel picked up a good time to wake up, as his pocket tens held on a {5-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{8-Hearts}{8-Spades}{J-Diamonds} board to get to the heads-up.

Lybaert added another big cash to his $1M+ lifetime winnings and finished in 3rd place.

The unstoppable Bensimhon raised to 100,000 from under the gun. Teun Mulder shoved 771,000 on the button and Bensimhon snapped him off.

Ben Bensimhon: {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}
Teun Mulder: {K-Hearts}{J-Hearts}

"The Pink Bunny" was in another fantastic spot to add another scalp to his trophy cabinet. The dealer fanned out {6-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} and Mulder's run ended in 4th place. The young Dutchman appears to have made his first-ever live cash for €31,214.
