There might not be a live stream of the €100K Super High Roller, but there’s always PokerStars Blog. Watch clips from the bubble right here.
There’s only one person who enjoys a bubble, and that’s the big stack. With eight remaining and seven paid in the €100K Super High Roller at EPT Monte Carlo, however, that big stack switched hands.
We arrived just after Luc Greenwood’s first-hand elimination (A♥10♥ < Mikita Badkiakouski’s A♠J♠), and Sergio Aido was the table short-stack. He got busy quickly, doubling through Badziakouski when his A♦9♦ binked a nine versus A♠K♦.
Aido doubled again the very next hand, this time through chip leader Daniel Dvoress. Aido’s A♣Q♣ won a flip versus Dvoress’s pocket fives, but that didn’t really dent Dvoress’s stack. However, just a couple of hands later, some damage was done.
Dvoress shoved on Sam Greenwood in a battle of the blinds, and the defending champion (Greenwood took down this event back in January at the 2019 PCA) had a big ICM decision to make. He liked his hand, that much was certain, but was he willing to risk it all when there were some shorter stacks?
Roll the clip.
Greenwood’s A♥Q♥ held up against the A♦8♥ of Dvoress to give the former the chip lead.
Some time then passed with not much action, before finally the bubble burst. Action folded to Koray Aldemir in the cutoff and he opened to 750,000 (with the blinds at 40K/80K with an 80K big blind ante). Aldemir had 480,000 behind, and after Dvoress got a count he set Aldemir all in. Call.
Aldemir had 9♥9♦, Dvoress had A♥K♦, and…well…you’ll see.
A brutal river for Aldemir sent him out in eighth place, while all remaining players are now guaranteed €268K.
