Event #43’s prize pool topped out at $141,683.10, nearly double the $75k guarantee. 168 places were paid with first place set to earn $23,732.68. Seven member of Team Pro and Team Online joined the field, including Marcin Horecki, Nacho Barbero, Marcel Luske, Henrique Pinho, George Danzer, Martin Hruby, and Mickey “mement_mori” Petersen. However, none of them finished in the money.

D3Z0LUTI0N hit top pair and the nut low draw on the A97 flop but was in kicker trouble vs.onmybicycle for the high. Both players made aces and nines when the 9 turned, and the river was the Q eliminating any low possibilities. Onmybicycle won the 970,602 main pot with aces and nines with a king kicker, D3Z0LUTI0N picked up the 997,402 side pot with aces and nines with a seven kicker, and Lena900 was eliminated on the final table bubble.

Both players missed the KQ6 flop, but kotik363 turned a pair of tens when the 10 fell. The river was the 8567. Kotik363 turned over 2366 and hit trips when the flop came down A33. Onmybicycle didn’t improve on the K turn or the 10 river and went out in fifth place ($5,979.02).

Bcin2004 rivered a Broadway straight on the Q1064J board and send D3Z0LUTI0N to the rail in fourth place ($9,138.55).

ICM, party of three

Bcin2004 moved up to 1.7 million in chips, but doubled up Boby Boom on the next hand to even their counts. The blinds up to a stratospheric 100,000/200,000, the final three decided to pause the action and take a shot at making a deal. Here’s a look at how they stacked up at the time:

Boby Boom 1,282,256
bcin2004 – 1,229,618
