Action folded to Philipp Gruissem in the hijack seat, and he raised to 500,000 to put the pressure on all of the short stacks left to act behind him. Play then folded to Winfred Yu in the small blind. With about 325,000 in chips, Yu called all in. Everyone else folded.

Yu showed the {8-Hearts}{8-Clubs} and was up against the {A-Spades}{10-Spades} for Gruissem.

On the flop, Gruissem didn't hit, but he became a favorite as the {K-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{2-Spades} fell. With straight and flush draws, plus two overcards, Gruissem needed to hit a jack, spade, ace or ten to win the pot.

The turn was the {6-Diamonds}, putting Yu one more card closer to the double up. The river was black, but it wasn't a spade. Still, it was the {10-Clubs} and that gave Gruissem a better pair to eliminate Yu in ninth place.

With only eight places paying, Yu became the official tournament bubble boy, andeEveryone remaining has locked up a minimum of €115,000.
