When heads-up started, Fraser MacIntyre joked "you should let me win it, I only have second places so far, especially in Spain," referring to his runner-up finish at EPT Madrid a few years ago. The duel would only last 15 minutes and MacIntyre was cut back down to 1,600,000 before the last hand of the tournament.
MacIntyre raised to 150,000 and Catalin Pop three-bet to 425,000, before MacIntyre gave him a stare down and moved all in. "Here we go again," joked Pop and called to set up a coin flip for the trophy.
"Ahh," MacIntyre sighed when he saw the flop fall and asked for a "queen ball." However, both the turn and river were blanks and MacIntyre was eliminated in 2nd place for €28,000. Pop not only gets €40,000 but the second 888Live winner's trophy after having already emerged victorious in the last Main Event in the King's Casino in Rozvadov.
A recap of today's action will be available shortly.
