When this tournament was down to ten players last year, Vasili Firsau moved his short stack all in holding the {k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} and received a call from Grant Levy, who held the {a-Clubs}{9-Hearts}. Firsau failed to catch, and he was sent home in tenth place for €76,000.

Fast forward a year. The tournament is down to ten players and Vasili Firsau was once again all in It happened when Jack Salter opened for 110,000 from the button and then snap-called Vasili's all-in shove for 1.165 million.

Salter: {j-Spades}{j-Clubs}
Vasili: {a-Spades}{10-Clubs}

Once again Vasili was behind and in need of some help, but history repeated itself after the board ran out a dry {4-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{k-Spades}. The situation was not lost on Firsau who let a small smile cross his face. For the second year in a row Firsau has barely missed out on the final table, and the only consolation he has here in Season 10 is that the prize money is a little more.
