Event #5: €10,400 No-Limit Hold'em (Split Format)

Here Comes Schwartzy

First into the pot, Noah Schwartz raised to 6,500, and Bruno Fitoussi defended his big blind with a call. Off they went to a {J-Hearts} {5-Spades} {9-Hearts} flop, and Schwartz continued out with the same 6,500. Fitoussi check-called, and he checked again on the {8-Hearts} turn. Schwartz wasn't stopping now, and he made it 17,500. But Fitoussi took control with a check-raise to 36,000, and Schwartz asked how much he was playing before making the call.

On the {Q-Diamonds} river, both men were content to check it down.

Schwartz showed his {Q-Spades} {10-Hearts} first, and Fitoussi flashed one card (possibly the {A-Diamonds}), nodded in acknowledgement, and returned his cards to the muck.
