In the previous hand, Fedor Holz won with {8-Spades}{6-Clubs} on an {8-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{10-Spades} board against Sergi Reixach's {10-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}. The German had bet 8,400 on the river and got paid to extend his lead.

In the next and final hand between the two, Holz raised to 2,000, Reixach three-bet to 8,800 and Holz called. The flop was {5-Spades}{a-Clubs}{2-Clubs} and Reixach bet 6,000, called by Holz.

The turn brought the {k-Clubs} and Reixach checked after some thought. Holz bet 11,200 and the Spaniard called.

The river was the {k-Hearts} and Reixach checked again. Holz bet 49,040, enough to cover Reixach's remaining stack of a little over 40,000, and after some thought he called it off with {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} for aces and kings.

Holz, however, had {10-Clubs}{7-Clubs} for a turned flush and advanced to the final, where he'll take on the winner of Botteon/Kahyaoglu.
