Vasil Medarov Eliminated in 7th Place (€27,317)

Vasil Medarov

Nikola Minkov opened to 350,000 and then called the 730,000 all-in from Vasil Medarov. Minkov just had his opponent covered.

Vasil Medarov: {a-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{8-Clubs}
Nikola Minkov: {a-Spades}{j-Spades}{9-Hearts}{6-Hearts}

Both players hit the ace on the {a-Clubs}{5-Spades}{4-Diamonds} flop, but Minkov had the superior kicker. Medarov couldn't catch up on the {k-Hearts} turn and the {2-Diamonds} was not the card he was looking for.

He tapped the table and left for the rail in seventh-place.

Minkov would then raise to 350,000 preflop in the next two consecutive hands and scoop the pots uncontested.

The {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} flop brought a bet worth 250,000 by Klostermeier and D'Avanzo called. After the {4-Diamonds} turn, Klostermeier check-called for 300,000 and the {9-Spades} river was checked.

"Pocket tens," Klostermeier announced and tabled the {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{7-Hearts}, which won the pot.
