Level 30: 2,500,000/5,000,000 (5,000,000)
Luuk Gieles took a bad beat against Gergely Bartos but since then he has been on fire. The momentum continued as he eliminated Taras Khilko in fourth place as follows.
Gieles jammed the small blind for 64.5 million and Khilko called off for 38 million.
Taras Khilko: K Q
Luuk Gieles: A 8
Khilko didn’t connect on the 4 4 3 flop and was drawing dead on the A turn. The 10 river made things official and Khilko headed to the cashier to collect the fourth place prize of €84,000. Khilko was also the only player in the field to find a bag during multiple opening flights. This gave him an extra min-cash, so his total haul in the Main Event was actually €89,000.
Meanwhile, the players on the podium are now guaranteed to collect at least the third-place prize of €122,000.
There also appears to be a Cinderella story possibly in the making with Gieles going from 3 to 22 big blinds in just three hands.
Luuk Gieles - 107.5 million
Taras Khilko - 0
