Kamphues missed the chance to win the third golden ring
From that moment on, the game became tense, and in the end Dorian Melchers, who was the current champion of the event, could not stand it. First, he lost most of the stack in several hands, and then gave the remaining chips to Lars Kamphues. Melchers became the 7th and received 30,100 euros. Then Gergoc lost his position a lot, and Kamphues became a chip leader.
There were four players with short stacks left in the game and two of them did not last long. The first was Vojtech Ruzicka (40,300 euros), who could not make a comeback with one chip. Ruzicka is known for his participation in the finals of the WSOP main event. Frans Van Staalduinen (51,400 euros) followed him home when his A-K that could not overcome Gergoc’s A-10. An hour later, Alireza Keyvar (65,500 euros) left the game, who could not beat Gergoc’s straight.
Of the three remaining players, Natale Allegra had the shortest stack. She managed to double the stack once, but it didn’t save her from elimination. The Italian was knocked out by Kamphues and received 83,900 euros. The heads-up between Kamphues and Gergoc was short. In the final hand, both had the top pair on the flop, but the jack on the river made Gergoc the champion. Kamphues missed the chance to win the third golden ring and received 119,500 euros.
