Malo and Ullmann checked a flop of over to Gareth Pepper who bet 400,000.
Malo check-raised all in for 790,000 and Ullmann re-raised to 1,325,000. Pepper took his time before tank-folding .
Ullmann had flopped the nut straight, with Malo holding nothing but a straight draw of his own.
The turn and river couldn't save him and Malo became the first elimination at the final table.
"I'm not sure about the play," Malo told the live stream. "Maybe I should fold preflop, but I'm just really happy in general.
"On Day 2 I went all in for 30,000 with against so I just ran super good and won a lot of all-ins to get here. The organisation is super good as well; it's just a great tournament with a super good field."
