Action at the Final Table
Dario Sammartino was the first finalist to leave the final table when he lost a coin flip. He jammed 706,116 from a big blind using ace-king when Dimov used pocket tens to make a 70,000 min-raise from an early position. The tens remained ahead at the jack-high board hence sending Sammartino packing.
Marcelo Asensio had the shortest stack at the beginning of the final day. Still, he left the tournament in eighth place after using queen-ten to go all-in with less than six big blinds when Casimir Seir used pocket queens to call. Asensio drew dead and got busted.
Aleksejs Ponakovs got busted seventh despite winning a World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet in the summer. Schemion used a suited ace-queen to open to 73,500 from a cutoff, while Ponakovs used a dominated ace-ten to shove 545,800 from the big blind.
The former called and his queen-kicker earned him a pot. Wiktor Malinowski got busted next after half an hour when he used ace-nine to min-raise from a cutoff while Dimov used eight-seven to defend a big blind. The latter bet 73,080 after flopping an eight-high straight and the former called.
Dimov paused briefly before wagering 350,000 in a 407,160 pot after an ace on the turn revealed three spades. Malinowski called again while Dimov shoved after the board was completed.
The former called off his 885,810 chips, but his top pair was crushed. Mark Radoja got the day's first six-figure cash prize, and odds were against him winning the title. He was unstuck in the 25,000/50,000/6,000a level as Schemion made a 105,000 raise from under the gun.
Radoja jammed 583,203 while Schemion turned an ace-jack and called before Radoja's king-queen. The latter struck a queen on the river, but it didn't help him as Schemion flopped and turned an ace.
Seire was the chip leader when the day's action began. But he finished fourth. He used pocket queens to make an 828,633 open-shove in a 70,000 big blind. Dimov used pocket tens to call in a small blind that reduced Seire's count to one big blind.
Juan Dominguez had almost twice the chips his two opponents held before three-handed action started. The play lasted for over an hour, and Dominguez lost the battle.
Schemion used queen-four of diamonds from a small blind and raised to 120,000, while Dominguez used ace-ten to make a 360,000 raise.
Schemion went all-in as Dominguez called off his 2,244,022 chips. The latter paired a ten on the turn after landing an ace on the flop. Yet, Schemion got a straight from a nine on the river that sent Dominguez packing.
The former had a 9,958,165:3,941,835 chip advantage over Dimov when their heads-up match began. Nacho Barbero and Jeff Gross thought that he would win the tournament. Besides, a jack on the flop sent Schemion home as a runner-up earning him $235,891, while Dimov won the title.
