After long hours of play, Mayer managed to double up with quad sixes and then won 1,000,000 with a three of a kind, so he looked like he had more chance. However, after 8hours of play, Isaia went pre-flop all in with his pocket sevens, which defeated the Hungarian pro's AJ. Soon Mayer raised pre-flop all-in with {#}Q {#}6 , Isaia called with {#}A {#}Q , winning the tournament as no help came for Mayer on the board.
