Matthias Eibinger limped in from under the gun and action folded around to the blinds. Sam Greenwood called, and Benjamin Pollak was forced in from the big blind, creating a small side pot between Eibinger and Greenwood.
The flop came down and both players checked to see the on the turn. There, Greenwood checked again. Eibinger made a motion to bet, but Greenwood quickly folded. With action heads up now, Eibinger and Pollak revealed their hands.
The river was the which paired Pollak, but it wasn't enough as Eibinger's pair was better. Pollak exited the tournament in 6th place, collecting $34,140 for his run in this event.
Under the gun, Benjamin Pollak moved all in for a bit over 800,000. Action folded around where Almedin Imsirovic called the shove with a shorter stack in late position. Everyone else folded so it was off to a showdown.
"Ugh," Imsirovic said. "You're not supposed to have two overs."
But the board comes out safe for him when it drops and that makes Imsirovic a full house and allows him to double up for 750,000, leaving Pollak with just 65,000 chips.
Christopher Kruk wins the $25K 3-day tournament for a hefty $836,350. There were over 100 entries including Daniel Negreanu, Dan Shak, Erik Seidel, Issac Haxton and last year's winner Luc Greenwood.

From middle position, Benjamin Pollak shoved all in for 390,000. Action folded around to the blind where Ramin Hajiyev called with a covering stack.
The flop decimates Hajiyev when it comes and he doesn't catch up on the turn or the river. That earns the double up for Pollak who doubles to right around 800,000 while Hajiyev is left as the short stack with right around 150,000.
