Oliver Busquet Eliminated in 2nd Place (€597,000)

Oliver Busquet - 2nd
Having been crippled by Tobias Reinkemeier's big bluff earlier, Oliver Busquet dropped below 1 million in chips.

Reinkemeier raised to 100,000 from the button/small blind, Busquet moved all-in for 980,000 and the German made perhaps the fastest call of his life.

Busquet: {A-Spades} {2-Clubs}
Reinkemeier: {Q-Hearts} {Q-Clubs}

The flop gave Busquet a couple of additional outs when it came {2-Hearts} {10-Diamonds} {7-Spades}. It looked for a second like another deuce had come on the turn but was in fact the {3-Hearts} that had appeared. Reinkemeier asked for the {7-Clubs} on the river but instead it was the {7-Diamonds} that arrived to seal Reinkemeier's triumph.

Afterwards, Busquet paid tribute to Reinkemeier, admitting he'd been outplayed in the crucial big pot when the German made a big bluff for his entire stack.

Nevertheless Busquet will be able to go home a rich and happy runner-up.
