Hand #99: Albert Hoekendijk raised to 300,000 on the button and Johannes Toebbe moved all in for 13 big blinds out of the small blind. Thomas Hofmann folded from the big blind and Hoekendijk snap-called.

While Toebbe was marginally ahead preflop, that all but changed with the {K-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{5-Clubs} flop. Neither the {9-Clubs} turn nor the {Q-Hearts} river changed anything and Toebbe was eliminated in 3rd place for €74,055. "I finally got you," Hoekendijk grinned and shook hands with the German.
