Soon 3 other Italians, Costantino Russo, Massimiliano Manigrasso and Francesco de Vivo were eliminated. Lykov, however, wasn't too lucky throughout the game, he showed kings against Xuan Liu's pocket tens in a preflop all-in hand, but a ten came on the turn, which made Liu's full house (the flop brought deuces), and Lykov was out.

Elder sitting on a huge stack called with {#}A {#}7, which won him the pot on the {#}4 {#}5 {#}7 {#}T {#}6 board and the chance to fight Heinzelmann in the heads-up.

Rupert Elder - 20.290.000
Max Heinzelmann - 9.245.000


The heads-up lasted for 1,5 hours. Heinzelmann took the lead quickly, he won with a straight against a set, but soon Elder caught one of his bluffs, and started to collect more and more chips, when finally Heinzelmann went all-in with his remaining 3,865,000 chips.
