After a long day that needed to continue beyond level 18, in order for the bubble to burst, Day 1f is finally over.
Oliver Heidel made a risky call, when Leonardo Sabatino open-shoved with a bigger stack than his and he made the call with King-Jack, which was behind his opponent's Ace-Queen. It proved to be a wrong call as he was eliminated in 151st place, one spot before the money.
The 1,000 entrants capped Day 1f, the last starting flight for the event and with this number of entries today, the €1,000,000 guarantee prize pool was reached easily and in fact, it went to €1,177,050.
