Cathal O’Malley (pictured) has been eliminated in 24th place by Justin Boyle, who had to make a call of 1.5 million to perform said busting. Caught from the turn on a As 8c Td 7d board, there was a pot of 600,000 that had to be won by someone, and O’Malley tried to make that someone not be Boyle by jamming for 1,500,000. Boyle did make the call, though, with Ah 4h, his pair of aces ahead of O’Malley’s Kd 9d flush draw. The river brought the 4s and players are now pausing while they’re shuffled around like a deck of cards for the last three tables.
Athanasios Tavlas who exited almost simultaneously on a different table; they both take home €8,040 for their efforts in the Main Event.
