Jose Carlos Garcia

Polish online qualifier Jose Carlos Garcia, who won the €2,000 Six Max Turbo here two years ago for €58,900, made it 1,000 from the hijack position. Action folded to Aku Joentausta in the big blind. Joentausta shoved all in, effectively asking Garcia to commit his 11,000 stack. Garcia indeed committed, and the cards were tabled.

Jose Carlos Garcia: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}
Aku Joentausta: {J-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}

What was about a coin flip situation pre flop, was an almost mission impossible post flop. The {J-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} gave Joentausta a full house and left Garcia nearly drawing dead. Runner runner queens or aces wasn't going to happen, the {3-Diamonds} on the turn sealed the deal. Garcia got up from the table, wished his former table mates good luck, and left as the {7-Clubs} hit the river.

Aku Joentausta is probably the chip leader of the tournament with about 120,000 in chips.
