Oleksii Khoroshenin had lost a previous hand when a move went wrong and the EPT10 Vienna champion would then bow out in the very last hand against fellow former EPT champion Frederik Jensen.
After one player had limped in, Khoroshenin raised to 3,000 from the small blind and Jensen called in the big blind, the limper folded. On the flop, Khoroshenin continued for 4,200 and was called, before leading again the turn for 9,000. Again Jensen didn't go anywhere and called.
The on the river brought a possible back door flush and Khoroshenin checked. Jensen moved all in and Khoroshenin tank-called for around 28,000. Jensen flipped over his for trips jacks and Khoroshenin tried to muck, but the dealer revealed his . What an end to Day 1a!
