Kristen Bicknell opened to 170,000 from the cutoff and James Chen three-bet all in for 1,450,000 from the next position. The blinds folded - including a disgusted-looking Benjamin Pollak - before Bicknell called.
Ole Schemion was eliminated by Christoph Vogelsang and the seat that formerly belonged to Alex Foxen is now occupied by Joao Vieira. According to Tobias Ziegler, Foxen had been all in for around 13 big blinds with pocket fives in the cutoff and Timothy Adams called with ace-queen to turn the nut straight.
Adams proceeded to win the next bigger pot on his table as well after taking on Adrian Mateos.
On the turn, Adams bet 1,050,000 in the big blind and Mateos called on the button. Adams then made it 2,400,000 to go after the river and that forced a fold from Mateos.
"Show one!" the Spaniard grinned, but his wish was denied by Adams, who raked in the pot with a big smile on the face.
Tobias Ziegler defended his big blind against a raise by Alex Foxen in late position and the flop came . Ziegler checked and Foxen bet 200,000, which prompted a check-min-raise to 400,000 by Ziegler. Foxen gave it some thought and called. On the turn, Ziegler bet 2,000,000, which more than covered Foxen's remaining stack.
The American high roller regular riffled his chips for a good minute before sending the cards into the muck.
A few tables over, Joao Vieira raised it up to 200,000 in the hijack and James Chen called on the button. Steve O'Dwyer in the big blind three-bet to 725,000 and picked up calls from both Vieira and Chen. What followed was a staring contest between the trio, ending in checks all the way on the flop and the turn. O'Dwyer also checked the river and Vieira tossed out a bet of 950,000. That ended up winning the hand without showdown, as two folds followed.
Joining the action on the turn, Johannes Becker led for 460,000 in the big blind and Ahadpur Khangah called on the button. Becker also bet the on the river, making it 1,250,000 to go, and that forced a fold from Khangah.
"On the outer tables you do that?" table neighbor Martin Kabrhel asked.
Becker replied with a "Sometimes" only, to which Kabrhel added "Maximum bubble boy for you, that's not nice.
Late registration remains open for the first two levels and the following break, and three players have joined before the cards went back in the air. Benjamin Pollak re-entered on Day 2 of the €25,500 Super High Roller and ended up in third place, hoping to repeat this or do even better.
Ilya Bulychev finished runner-up to Anson Tsang in Event #7: €2,200 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed and joined, Alex Foxen also re-entered after having busted on Day 1.
