Rocco Palumbo

Jakub Michalak raised to 225,000 on the button. Rocco Palumbo responded with a shove of 2,500,000 from the big blind. It send Michalak in the tank.

"Normally I would snap-fold this, but I'm tired," smiled Michalak, who spent the better part of two minutes glossing over his options. Eventually, the Polish pro called, putting Palumbo at risk.

Rocco Palumbo: {K-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}
Jakub Michalak: {2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}

The flop {Q-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{6-Hearts} gave Palumbo the queens as extra counterfeit outs. The {J-Spades} made it even spicier, as now the kings, queens, jacks, tens and nines were all outs for the Italian. The river, however, was the {3-Hearts}, missing Palumbo's many outs.

Michalak's pair of deuces remained in front, giving him the title and €188,229! Palumbo finished in second place and took home €138,763.

An extensive recap of the €10,300 Single Day High Roller will follow.
