Event #7: €10,400 Main Event Championship

Constant Rijkenberg is Out

Well, it's always fun to watch. Constant Rijkenberg has put on quite a show here over the past two days, but his run at the featured table has come to an end. We couldn't get to the featured table in time to catch the action, but we're fairly sure Rijkenberg was the shover with {A-Hearts} {Q-Hearts} and Giuseppe Sammartino was the caller with {8-Spades} {10-Spades}. That sounds backwards, though, so perhaps those watching the stream know better. In any event, Rijkenberg only had around 200,000, and he was at risk.

The {9-Hearts} {7-Spades} {A-Clubs} flop drew a chorus of, "Oooooh"s from the table as it gave the two men a good sweat. The turn {Q-Clubs} was a blank, but the river {J-Spades} was the crusher for Constant. Sammartino makes his straight, and with it comes the elimination of the start-of-day chip leader. Rijkenberg is out, and the Italian is up over the half-million chip mark.
