A wild and lengthy hand took place on the outer table when Alexandre Vuilleumier opened to 65,000 in middle position and Sergio Coutinho three-bet to around 150,000 with just a single chip behind.

Benjamin Pollak then cold four-bet to around 500,000 from the big blind and Vuilleumier five-bet jammed with both opponents covered. Despite being heavily pot-committed, Coutinho tossed out several time banks as he eyed a pay jump and went deep into the tank.

"Sorry about your arms," Coutinho told a TV crew member holding a boom mic above the table.

Coutinho eventually called and Pollak quickly followed suit.

Sergio Coutinho: {q-Spades}{10-Spades}
Benjamin Pollak: {a-Clubs}{a-Spades}
Alexandre Vuilleumier: {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}

Pollak and Vuilleumier both had aces and chopped up their Portuguese opponent as the board ran out {j-Clubs}{4-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{8-Clubs} to mark his elimination in 14th place for £34,250.

"A lot of drama," Vuilleumier laughed as he and Pollak chopped the small pot.
