8.26pm: PokerStars Qualifier Martin Meciar wins Eureka4 Rozvadov! (€87,600); Michael-David Passy eliminated in 2nd place (€65,000)
With Michael-David Passy short stacked, the Belgian was aggressive from the get-go. He managed to shove Martin Meciar off one hand but in the third hand of heads-up play, Passy shoved over the top of a Meciar limp and was instantly called.
The flop came J♥4♠8♣ and Meciar improved to a pair as well as picking a couple of backdoor draws. The 3♠ on the turn was a total brick - a great card for the Slovakian player. Passy needed a five or an eight on the river to double but the K♦ meant that it was Martin Meciar who would become the winner of the biggest ever standalone Eureka Poker Tour event!
