Full payouts from Super High Roller

7pm: Fedor Holz wins! (€1,300,300); Sam Greenwood second (€903,600)
Level 24 - Blinds: 100,000/200,000 (25,000 ante)

There were a few jokes at the end of play yesterday that they might as well just give the trophy to Fedor Holz, well they can now as he's taken down this super high roller to continue his incredible run. For context the €1,300,300 he's just won is his fourth biggest score of 2016! Fourth! Good news for everyone then that he's 'retired'.

In the final hand Sam Greenwood shoved for 3,150,000 with 6♥5♥ and Holz made the call with A♦K♦. The board was a sweaty 9♦7♠K♣4♣Q♦ but Holz took the hand, the pot and the trophy.

Commiserations to Sam Greenwood and congratulations (again) to Fedor Holz.

A full wrap of today's final table is on the way.

Not bad for a part-time poker player

6:50pm: Three in a row for Holz
Level 24 - Blinds: 100,000/200,000 (25,000 ante)

Fedor Holz continues to grind down Sam Greenwood and accumulate the Canadian's chips. He's won the first three hands of this level and the third was the biggest.

Greenwood was on the button and limped it with 9♦7♠ - although we didn't know his cards until the hand was over - and Holz checked with Q♥4♠. On the 8♥7♥5♥ flop Greenwood fired out 300,000 and Holz smooth called.

The 6♠ fell on the turn giving both players a straight, Greenwood's was better but Holz did have the flush draw. Greenwood bet 625,000 and Holz called again. The 6♥ river filled Holz's flush and he led for 625,000. Greenwood didn't like it but he called and looked exasperated that he'd been rivered by Holz.

The German now has a stranglehold on this heads-up match as Greenwood is down to around 3,000,000 whilst Holz has 22,500,000.

6:35pm: Break time
Level 23 - Blinds: 80,000/160,000 (20,000 ante)

The players are taking a 10 minute break, Fedor Holz now has a near four to one chip lead.

6:30pm: More for Holz
Level 23 - Blinds: 80,000/160,000 (20,000 ante)

Another big pot has gone the way of Fedor Holz and he's stretched his lead to 18,600,000 to 6,900,000. Holz raised the button with 4♥ and another card that the RFDI readers hadn't picked up. Greenwood defended with A♣8♦ and the two of them saw a K♣T♣3♠ flop. A bet of 450,000 from Holz was called by Greenwood and the K♦ rolled off on the turn. It went check-check (as predicted by Vanessa Selbst, who has joined the EPTLive commentary team). The J♥ fell on the river and Selbst said that she liked a bet here from Greenwood as he was, "supposed to have a king, jack or ten always."

But he checked and Selbst thought that Holz was going to bet and bet big. She was right. Holz fired out 1,875,000 and Greenwood mulled it over before folding.

6:20pm: Holding steady
Level 23 - Blinds: 80,000/160,000 (20,000 ante)

It's still Fedor Holz out in front. He's got 18,000,000 to Sam Greenwood's 7,500,000.

6:10pm: Holz takes a big pot
Level 23 - Blinds: 80,000/160,000 (20,000 ante)

The first big pot of heads-up play has gone to Fedor Holz but we can't tell you a lot more than the fact that Holz raised pre-flop, bet the flop, called a check-raise from Greenwood on the flop, then checked the turn and bet 2,400,000 on the river, into a pot of 4,600,000. That final bet was tank-called by Greenwood.

The card graphics were down for the hand and the camera didn't zoom in on the hand Holz turned over on the river of a 2♦7♦5♣A♥9♥. Greenwood mucked his facedown. That's a big chip swing as Holz is up to 17,700,000 and Greenwood is down to 7,900,000

Edit: Joe Stapleton just told EPTLive viewers that Holz had 9♣7♣ and Greenwood: [QX][7X]

6pm: Heads-up play begins
Level 23 - Blinds: 80,000/160,000 (20,000 ante)

The two players have shook hands and taken their seats. Heads-up play is underway.

EPT13_barcelona_super_high_roller_day3_head_up.jpg

The final two

5:45pm: Timothy Adams eliminated in third place (€597,500)
Level 23 - Blinds: 80,000/160,000 (20,000 ante)

We're now heads-up and it was an expensive coin-flip that's reduced the field to just two. In the hand in question Sam Greenwood raised to 400,000 from the button with A♣K♣, Timothy Adams shoved from the big blind for 5,350,000 with pocket twos and Greenwood made the call.

The K♠Q♦6♣Q♠T♠ board favoured the overcards and Adams exited in third place. The final two are almost dead level in chips with Greenwood having 12,620,000 and Holz 12,880,000.

EPT13_barcelona_super_high_roller_day3_timothy_adams.jpg

Third place for Adams

5:40pm: Greenwood flops a straight
Level 23 - Blinds: 80,000/160,000 (20,000 ante)

It's not all one way traffic as Sam Greenwood just got some chips back from Fedor Holz. The latter raised it up from the small blind with J♣7♥ and Sam Greenwood called from the big blind with J♠9♥. The 8♠T♥7♥ flop was gin for Greenwood but both players checked and the J♥ turn made the board a bit scarier.

Again both players checked and the 6♣ completed the board. Once again Holz checked and Greenwood bet near pot, firing out 870,000. Holz talked to himself for a long time and it looked like he was going to get away from it, but he eventually made the call and Greenwood took the pot.

5:30pm: Holz doing what Holz does
Level 23 - Blinds: 80,000/160,000 (20,000 ante)

It started with a limp, well technically a completion. That's not something you can say about most big pots but it's what Sam Greenwood did with 4♠3♠ from the small blind. Fedor Holz had K♣Q♣ though and he raised it up to 500,000, Greenwood wasn't done though as he made it 1,600,000 and Holz made the call.

On the 9♠9♦8♣ Greenwood made a relatively small bet of 920,000 and Holz once more smooth called. On the 2♥ turn Greenwood slowed down, checking the action to Holz, who bet 875,000. It was enough to get the job done and Holz now has more than half the chips in play. He's up to 14,230,000, Greenwood and Adams both have around 5,640,000.

5:20pm: Holz gets thin value
Level 22 - Blinds: 60,000/120,000 (20,000 ante)

Limping big hands from the small blind is becoming a trend during three-handed play it seems. We've seen Fedor Holz do it with pocket kings, Timothy Adams try it with pocket sevens and Sam Greenwood completed the set by trying it with A♣K♠.

It gave Holz a free look at a flop with J♦5♠ and he took the lead on the 2♦2♣J♥ flop. Greenwood led at it for 120,000 and called when Holz made it 315,000 total. Action slowed down on the 7♠ turn and the 3♦ completed the board. Greenwood checked it over to Holz who went for value with a bet of 635,000.

It put Greenwood in a really tough spot and he stacked up the calling chips with a grimaced look on his face. He spent over two minutes in the tank before calling with ace high. He's down to 9,000,000 and Holz is up to 12,000,000.

5:10pm: Now Holz picks up kings
Level 22 - Blinds: 60,000/120,000 (20,000 ante)

Before three-handed play began there was brief talk of a deal but Holz said he was having too much fun right now so it was very brief. He then seconds later picked up pocket kings. A simple raise right? Nope, Holz limped from the small blind and Adams bumped it up to 425,000 with A♠J♥. Now Holz sprung to life, re-raising to 1,370,000. Call from Adams.

The 9♥9♠T♥ flop missed Adams and he folded to a bet of 980,000 from Holz. He's now the chip leader with around 11,000,000. --NW

5pm: Alexandros Kolonias eliminated in fourth place (€467,700)
Level 22 - Blinds: 60,000/120,000 (20,000 ante)

From domination nation to domination rotation and a horrible exit hand for Alexandros Kolonias at the hands of Fedor Holz.

It was actually Timothy Adams who opened the action, raising to 300,000 with A♠8♥, Kolonias looked down at pocket kings and moved all-in for 2,175,000. Action was now on Holz and he had pocket nines and a decision. His decision was to also move all-in and that got Adams out the way.

The A♣8♦9♠ flop was as good for Holz as it was bad for Kolonias and the German's hand held up on the 4♦ turn and 4♥ river.

Holz is up to 9,660,000 which is a big blind or two behind Sam Greenwood (9,840,000) and Adams is the short stack with 6,000,000. --NW

EPT13_barcelona_super_high_roller_day3_Alexandros Kolonias.jpg

It's good game for Kolonias

4:55pm: Adams slips to third
Level 22 - Blinds: 60,000/120,000 (20,000 ante)

The two Canadians just locked horns, with Sam Greenwood picking up a small pot from Timothy Adams. Greenwood opened his button, making it 300,000 to go, and Adams called from the big blind. (The other two players weren't interested.)

They saw a flop of 8♦2♣4♠ and, after Adams checked, Greenwood bet 230,000. Seeing only one over-card, Adams called.

The turn brought the A♦ and Greenwood responded to Adams's check with another bullet, this time 600,000. Adams had a gutshot now and he called, which bought the 4♦ on the river.

Both players now checked and Greenwood's pair of aces took it down.

It was a pivotal hand. Greenwood extended his chip-lead and Adams slipped below Fedor Holz into third, of four. Greenwood has 9.8 million; Holz 7.3 million and Adams 6.3 million. -- HS

4:50pm: Kolonias the clear short stack
Level 22 - Blinds: 60,000/120,000 (20,000 ante)

With only 15 big blinds left, Alexandros Kolonias is the clear short stack. He just tried to get cute, limping from the small blind with T♣7♦. Sam Greenwood was having none of it though as he shoved all-in with A♣T♥ and Kolonias folded.

4:45pm: Holz forces Greenwood to fold
Level 22 - Blinds: 60,000/120,000 (20,000 ante)

Sam Greenwood just picked up the doomed 8♥8♣, and like others before him, lost the pot. The thing he didn't know at the time is that--whisper it--he was good. He should have called.

With Alexandros Kolonias looking on from behind a short stack, his three well-chipped adversaries went to battle against each other, ending with Fedor Holz having a bluff at the river.

Greenwood found those eights under the gun and raised to 300,000. Holz called on the button with K♦8♦ and Timothy Adams called from the small blind with 3♠3♦. So, three of them were still involved when the flop came 7♥6♥T♣ and both Adams and Greenwood checked.

fedor_holz_ept13_barcelona_day3.jpg

How could a face so angelic not have it?

Holz, with the worst hand, bet 500,000 and only Greenwood now called. Both players checked the 6♠ turn and Greenwood also checked the Q♣ river. But Holz had a stab, a 975,000 stab, and Greenwood tank-folded the best hand. -- HS

4:30pm: Holz bluffs the river
Level 22 - Blinds: 60,000/120,000 (20,000 ante)

There's been a few hands where the RFID sensor hasn't picked up the cards of Timothy Adams, leaving viewers in the dark about his holding. It's made some of the hands fun to sweat and he just played one against Fedor Holz that reached the river.

It was a blind on blind hand with Holz holding J♦7♣ and Adams, well, we didn't know. They went heads-up to a 6♣T♣5♣ flop, Holz bet 220,000 and Adams stuck around. The K♦ turn checked through and the 8♥ river left Holz with just jack high. You don't win $11,000,000 in six months by going to showdowns with jack high and Holz bet 515,000.

Adams had a bit of a think and then folded, he was asked to position his cards so they RFID reader could pick them up and we saw that he had Q♥5♠ for a small pair and the best hand. Pot to Holz. --NW

4:15pm: Ahadpur Khangah eliminated in fifth place (€377,100)
Level 22 - Blinds: 60,000/120,000 (20,000 ante)

And then there were four.

From the small blind Sam Greenwood moved all-in with A♠7♥ and Ahadpur Khangah called off for his last 1,120,000 with K♦J♦. Greenwood was ahead but only a 54-46 percent favourite. Indeed it was Khangah who took the lead on the 4♣T♣J♣ flop but Greenwood vaulted back into the lead on the A♥ turn. It was a lead he kept on the 8♣ river.

ahdpur_khangah_ept13_barcelona_day3.jpg

Ahadpur Khangah out

A solid performance then from the amateur Khangah on his first EPT appearance, but it's come to an end in fifth place.

4:10pm: Khangah limps into trouble
Level 22 - Blinds: 60,000/120,000 (20,000 ante)

Ahadpur Khangah's policy of limping pre-flop just got him into trouble in a pot against Timothy Adams. Khangah found A♦5♦ and hope to pay 120,000 to see a flop. Fedor Holz called in the small blind, but Timothy Adams put in a big raise from the big blind with J♦J♣. Khangar called. He wanted to see this flop. (Holz folded.) But then when flop came J♠Q♠K♥ and Adams bet again, Khangar folded leaving himself with only nine big blinds. -- HS

4:10pm: Tens again for Greenwood
Level 22 - Blinds: 60,000/120,000 (20,000 ante)

On the first hand back from the break Sam Greenwood picked up pocket tens, raised and picked up the blinds and antes. --NW

3:45pm: Level over; first break
Level 21 - Blinds: 50,000/100,000 (10,000 ante)

That's the end of Level 21 and players are taking a 20-minute break. We lost four of them in that first passage of play, which also sent Sam Greenwood vaulting to the chip lead.

The counts at present are as follows:

Sam Greenwood: 7,985,000 (66 BBs)
Timothy Adams: 7,730,000 (64 BBs)
Fedor Holz: 5,230,000 (43 BBs)
Alexandros Kolonias: 2,655,000 (22 BBs)
Ahadpur Khangah: 1,900,000 (15 BBs)

3:43pm: Defending champ done; down to five
Level 21 - Blinds: 50,000/100,000 (10,000 ante)

Pocket eights is rapidly becoming the hand to avoid at this final table--and the snowmen have just accounted for the defending champion, Sylvain Loosli.

Fedor Holz opened to 225,000 from under the gun and action folded around to Loosli in the big blind. Loosli looked down at 8♠8♥ and he shoved for 2.086 million. Holz snapped and off they went to the races.

Although technically a slight favourite, pairs have fared very poorly this week to over-cards, at least in the all-in confrontations I have watched. And so it proved again here as the board ran Q♥A♠2♥7♠T♥, the ace on the flop proving to be the killer.

Loosli has to make do with €232,600 for sixth place this time. -- HS

sylvain_loosli_ept13_barcelona_day3.jpg

Sylvain Loosli: First to sixth

3:40pm: Sound the four-bet klaxon
Level 21 - Blinds: 50,000/100,000 (10,000 ante)

The EPT Live lads had to shake the dust off the cold four-bet klaxon as we just saw the first such instance at this final table.

Sylvain Loosli got the party started with Q♠J♠, Fedor Holz three-bet to 500,000 in position with A♥8♥ and action passed to Timothy Adams who was on the button. He gave it a good old sweat and then four-bet to 1,275,000. We couldn't see Adams cards at this point so had no idea what he had.

Loosli had seen enough and he ducked out the way and, after a couple of minutes in the tank, Holz did likewise. We then did get to see the Canadian's cards which were A♣Q♦. Good fold by Holz then. --NW

3:30pm: Daniel Dvoress eliminated in seventh place (€232,600)
Level 21 - Blinds: 50,000/100,000 (10,000 ante)

We have six players left and a new chip-leader as Sam Greenwood just eliminated Daniel Dvoress. From under the gun, Greenwood opened to 250,000 with T♥T♦ and one seat over Dvoress shipped in his 1,640,000 stack with pocket eights. When it folded back to Greenwood he quickly called and Dvoress saw the bad news.

A 9♥Q♥4♦5♣5♦ run out eliminated Dvoress from the event and the tournament loses the best dressed player at the final table. --NW

3:28pm: Greenwood's charge continues
Level 21 - Blinds: 50,000/100,000 (10,000 ante)

Sam Greenwood has closed the gap on Timothy Adams at the top of the chip charts by taking a pot from his fellow Canadian.

The former opened with K♣9♣ and Adams defended from the big blind with T♦7♦. Adams flopped best on 7♣6♦6♠ and called Greenwood's 190,000 chip c-bet. The 5♣ turn meant Greenwood picked up flush and straight draws and he bet again. This time the price was 500,000 and Adams gave it up. He's down to 7,120,000, Greenwood is up to 6,325,000. --NW

3:25pm: Daniel Dvoress doubles
Level 21 - Blinds: 50,000/100,000 (10,000 ante)

We're back to the Department of Hands that Play Themselves for this one, as Daniel Dvoress picked up A♥K♠ and moved his stack of 770,000 across the line. Fedor Holz was in the big blind and called off with A♠7♥. The 4♦Q♥2♥T♠T♥ kept Dvoress in front and he doubled to 1,660,000, while Holz is down to 4,160,000. --NW

3:20pm: Khangah wriggles away
Level 21 - Blinds: 50,000/100,000 (10,000 ante)

Ahadpur Khangah is proving especially tough to predict, but it's not only blind aggression, it's sometimes also unexpected folds. He limped from under the gun with A♦J♣ and Fedor Holz raised to 350,000. Action folded back to Khangah and he passed. (Holz had Q♣T♥.)

manuchehr_khangah_ept13_shr_day3.jpg

The unpredictable Manuchehr Khangah

On the next hand, both Khangah and Holz turned a flush on the board of 8♥5♥2♥Q♥. Holz had A♥J♠ and Khangah had A♦T♥. They both checked, with Holz setting a trap, and then the J♥ came on the river. Khangah checked again; Holz bet and Khangah folded his third nuts. -- HS

3:15pm: Julian Stuer eliminated in eighth place (€181,200)
Level 21 - Blinds: 50,000/100,000 (10,000 ante)

Action folded to Sam Greenwood in the small blind and the Canadian set Julian Stuer in for his final 535,000. Stuer called all-in.

Greenwood was in front with K♠8♠ but Stuer's Q♠2♣ went ahead on the Q♦J♠A♥ flop. Greenwood had seven outs and that increased to 12 on the 6♠ turn. Stuer had a dozen death cards to dodge but couldn't manage it as the K♦ sent him to the payout desk to collect €181,200. --NW

3.06pm: Khangah limps queens, gets paid
Level 21 - Blinds: 50,000/100,000 (10,000 ante)

Over the three days of this tournament we've seen Ahadpur Khangah limp a lot of hands. We haven't been able to see what they are a lot of the time but we just saw him limp Q♠Q♥ from early position. Timothy Adams had a decent hand too and after thinking it over he just called from the button with K♥J♦ and Sam Greenwood checked his option with 7♥4♥.

The A♥K♣Q♦ flop gave Khangah a set but he didn't bet it and the action rolled on to the 3♠ turn. Khangah could wait no longer and bet 250,000. Call from Adams.

The 9♥ completed the board and Khangah bet for value again, 475,000 was the price and it was one that a reluctant Adams was willing to pay. After that hand Khangah is up to 2,300,000 while Adams drops to 7,620,000. --NW

3:05pm: Stuer loses race, down to fumes
Level 21 - Blinds: 50,000/100,000 (10,000 ante)

Julian Stuer is only barely alive after losing a flip for almost all of his chips.

Stuer, following a trend established early in this final table, limped from early position with K♠Q♦ and that attracted Ahadpur Khangah from the hijack and Timothy Adams from the small blind.

Alexandros Kolonias was in the big blind and found 9♦9♣. He moved all in for 1.085 million. Stuer didn't take too long before re-shoving, for not much more. Khangah and Adams folded.

So this was a race and the flopped made it pretty imbalanced. It came 6♥K♥9♠. The 5♠ put a lock on it for Kolonias. The river of the Q♣ was just salt in the wound. -- HS

3pm: Another for Loosli
Level 21 - Blinds: 50,000/100,000 (10,000 ante)

From a stack of 22 big blind Sylvain Loosli elected to limp in from the button with A♥J♥. That dragged Fedor Holz in from the small blind with the less than stellar J♠[3h and Timothy Adams got a free look at the K♥T♥T♦ flop with Q♥4♥.

So flush draws for Loosli and Adams and nothing for Holz. It was checked to the Frenchman who bet 160,000 and Adams was the only caller. The T♣ turn checked through and Loosli made top pair on the A♠ river. A bet of 450,000 was enough for Loosli to drag another pot. --NW

2:55pm: Two in a row for Loosli
Level 21 - Blinds: 50,000/100,000 (10,000 ante)

Sylvain Loosli is bidding to win his second EPT Barcelona super high roller title in a row and he boosted his chances by winning two hands in a row. In the first he opened from under-the-gun with A♣5♣ and Ahadpur Khangah defended from the big blind with K♦2♣. The Q♥7♥J♥ flop missed both players but Loosli took it down with sheer aggression as Khangah folded to his flop bet.

He had to do even less to win the second pot as he got a walk, much appreciated when you're holding four high as Loosli was. He's up to 2,270,000 now. --NW

2:25pm: Hartigan and Stapes stretch their vocal cords
Level 20 - Blinds: 40,000/80,000 (10,000 ante)

It took 11 hands of the final table for Hartigan and Stapes to bust out their No 1 hit. Both Fedor Holz and Alexandros Kolonias had weak aces and there was no betting action until the river of a K♦8♦T♥J♠Q♠ when both made the nuts.

Kolonias value-bet 250,000, Holz value-raised to 500,000, Kolonias shoved for 975,000 and Holz obviously called. That all took a couple of minutes to play out and the pot was chopped. --NW

2:35pm: Back-to-back aces
Level 20 - Blinds: 40,000/80,000 (10,000 ante)

You never see them for weeks and then two come along at once. Ahadpur Khangah picked up aces and shoved over Julian Stuer's opening raise. Stuer binned his deuces. Then the very next hand, Timothy Adams found them in the big blind and got a walk. -- HS

2:25pm: Four-way all-in!
Level 20 - Blinds: 40,000/80,000 (10,000 ante)

This is not a drill! We just had a four-way all-in at the final table.

Ahadpur Khangah limped with A♠5♠ and that started a chain reaction. Erik Seidel shoved for 850,000 with 9♠9♣. So far, so standard. Then, in the small blind, Sam Greenwood peeked down at K♠K♥. In went his stack of 1,250,000 but we weren't done there. Julian Stuer had a big pair too - T♠T♦ - and he re-shoved. He covered both with 2,130,000.

So a trivial fold for Khangah? No, he wanted in on the action and called to put three players at risk. Greenwood was a 38 percent favourite to win the hand, Khangah 26 percent to eliminate all three, Stuer 19 percent to win a huge pot and Seidel 17 percent to survive and quadruple up.

julian_stuer_ept13_barcelona_shr_final.jpg

Julian Stuer: Out

The flop fell Q♠4♥J♥. "If two people make a set then someone makes a straight," said Fedor Holz as we waited for the turn. Fourth street was the J♠ meaning Khangah had flush and ace outs to win the hand.

The 2♥ completed the board meaning Greenwood quadrupled up to 4,690,000, Stuer won the side pot but still dropped to 1,760,000, Khangah is down to 1,410,000 and Seidel out in ninth for €137,130. --NW

sam_greenwood_ept13_final_shr.jpg

Sam Greenwood: Four times

2:20pm: Another shove!
Level 20 - Blinds: 40,000/80,000 (10,000 ante)

Four hands in and each has bought something to the party. The fourth started with a limp from Ahadpur Khangah with A♣2♠, Erik Seidel came along with A♠4♠ and Sam Greenwood also looked down at an ace. His was the best of the lot - A♥9♥ - and he wagered all of his 1,010,000 stack. It got the job done and he padded his stack. --NW

2:20pm: Dvoress shoves on Stuer
Level 20 - Blinds: 40,000/80,000 (10,000 ante)

The first shove of the final table came from Daniel Dvoress who moved all-in for 1,030,000 with A♣Q♣ after Julian Stuer had opened to 180,000. It folded back to Stuer and he decided his Q♥J♥ wasn't good enough and pitched it into the muck. --NW

2:10pm: Big stacks play a pot on the first hand
Level 20 - Blinds: 40,000/80,000 (10,000 ante)

On the first hand of the final table the two big stacks went to war. OK not war, but it was a skirmish. OK not a skirmish, they played a pot.

It was a blind on blind encounter with Fedor Holz completing from the small blind with T♣7♥ and Timothy Adams checking his option with 8♠2♦.

The 5♣8♥7♣ flop gave both players a pair and Holz check-called a bet of 125,000. The 3♦ hit the turn and the pattern repeated itself with Holz matching Adams's bet of 375,000. The A♦ slowed both players down and Adams took the pot at showdown. He's now got roughly twice the amount of Holz, who is still the second biggest stack at the table. --NW
