Teun Mulder Eviscerates Final Table to Win €25,000 No-Limit Hold'em II for €389,870

“That was insane.”

It certainly was. Teun Mulder wiped out the entire final table of the PokerStars European Poker Tour Paris €25,000 No-Limit Hold'em II, taking care of his final six opponents after the bubble burst in under half an hour to claim the €389,870 first prize.

It’s Mulder’s second career Spadie, following his win in another €25,000 at EPT Prague in March of last year. But that win was nothing like this one.

When asked after his victory if he'd ever had a stretch where he'd run that hot, the champion replied, "No, probably not; that was insane. I got it in bad, and I won, and I got it in 50/50, and I also won."

Mulder’s final victim of the night was Tauan Naves of Brazil, who managed to survive the rest of the final table carnage to take home €257,900 for his runner-up finish.

Once Mulder busted Joao Vieira in eighth place to burst the money bubble, he had double the chips of his next closest opponent, and it was all over from there. The €1,199,520 prize pool from the 51 entries would be distributed in very short order.

What a Final Table Performance!

Once Niklas Astedt eliminated Orpen Kisacikoglu in 10th place to set up the final table of nine, the Teun Mulder show began.

He entered the final table second in chips behind Naves, but quickly grabbed the lead with his elimination of Juan Pardo in 9th place to set the stage for what was to come.

After what would be the final break of the night, Vieira and Pedro Garagnani each returned with under five big blinds, and as mentioned, it would be Vieira falling short of the money when his king-deuce couldn’t survive against Mulder’s eight-deuce.

Yup, that’s how it was going to be.

Immediately after that, Garagnani (7th - €62,950) and Thomas Muehloecker (6th - €80,950) were both eliminated in the same hand when Garagnani got his microstack in with queen-deuce against Muehloecker’s pocket queens and Mulder’s pocket jacks.

Of course, a jack came on the flop, and the field was down to five.

Just a couple of minutes after that, Astedt smashed his ace-nine into Mulder’s pocket kings and the Dutchman had his next victim, sending Astedt home with the day’s first six-figure payday of €101,950.

Next to go was Jakov Nesterov (4th - €131,950) who got his ace-six in dominated versus Mulder’s ace-seven. There was no three-outer or a chop for Nesterov, and the tournament was down to three-handed.

Again, within a couple of hands, Mulder had another potential elimination on deck with Seth Davies (3rd - €173,950) holding queen-jack versus Mulder’s ten-eight. Without fail, an eight came for Mulder to set things up for his final victim, Naves.

As he had already been a couple of times at the final table, Mulder found himself dominated, with Naves holding ace-eight versus his ace-seven. Still, when a straight draw presented itself on the flop, it seemed a foregone conclusion that it would come in, and it did on the turn to complete Mulder’s incredible victory.

More from Mulder on Sunday?

The high rollers will now return on Sunday for the three-day €50,000 buy-in event, and Mulder says he’ll be in the mix looking to continue his incredible rungood from Saturday here at the Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile. PokerNews will be there the whole way with continued coverage of that event and all the excitement from EPT Paris 2023.

Tauan Naves Eliminated in 2nd Place (€257,900)

• Nível 20: Blinds 20,000-40,000, 40,000 ante
Tauan Naves
Tauan Naves

Tauan Naves moved in for his last 500,000 or so and was called by Teun Mulder.

Tauan Naves: {a-Spades}{8-Clubs}
Teun Mulder: {a-Hearts}{7-Clubs}

Navas was the player who finally had it in great against the unstoppable Mulder, but that wouldn't matter as this was a final table of destiny for Mulder.

The flop came {10-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{9-Hearts} pairing Naves, but bringing an open-ended straight draw to Mulder.

He wouldn't have to wait long for it, as the {6-Clubs} fell on the turn, with the inconsequential {k-Diamonds} coming on the river to eliminate Naves and give Mulder the title.

The Teun Mulder show continued with his latest in a flurry of quick executions of his opponents.

This time it was Seth Davies getting his last 305,000 in the middle against Mulder.

Seth Davies: {q-Spades}{j-Diamonds}
Teun Mulder: {10-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}

The board brought the {8-Diamonds} on the turn for Mulder this time, with no help to Davies as he was the next to head out the door.

Teun Mulder: {a-Hearts}{7-Hearts}

Mulder had it in with another dominant spot and after the board came {j-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{2-Spades}, the seemingly unstoppable Mulder had scored another quick knockout.

Thomas Muehloecker raised to 80,000 in the hijack and was three-bet to 180,000 by Teun Mulder on the button.

Pedro Garagnani then moved his last 85,000 (plus his blinds) into the middle.

Muehloecker then moved in as well for 405,000 and Mulder called.

Pedro Garagnani: {q-Diamonds}{2-Spades}
Thomas Muehloecker: {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}
Teun Mulder: {j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

The board came {j-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{4-Clubs}, giving Mulder trip jacks to eliminate two players.

Vieira Eliminated on Bubble by Mulder

• Nível 20: Blinds 20,000-40,000, 40,000 ante
Joao Vieira

Teun Mulder moved all in from the small blind, covering Joao Vieira's final 150,000 chips. Vieira called and was at risk on the bubble.

Joao Vieira: {k-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}
Teun Mulder: {8-Spades}{2-Clubs}

Vieira was in as good of shape as he could ask until the {8-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{5-Spades} flop paired Mulder.

The {4-Spades}{5-Clubs} runout brought Vieira no help and he was the unfortunate bubble boy.
