Action folded to Peter Ockenden on the button, who picked up and raised the action. Armin Mette shoved all in from the small blind for 154,000, Guillaume Valle reshoved from the big blind, covering both Mette and Ockenden.
It was the perfect scenario for Ockenden, who immediately called all in as well.
It was a setup of massive proportions, with neither player getting away from it at any point. The flop gave Ockenden top set, but Mette picked up a flush draw. Valle was nearly drawing dead with his pocket tens.
The on the turn was safe for Ockenden, but Mette's hopes of winning the EPT weren't dashed yet as the on the river improved the Austrian to a flush, saving his tournament life.
Ockenden won the side pot versus Valle, which improved his stack as well. Former chipleader Valle was left with just sixteen big blinds.
