Tobias doubled to 3.9M in this hand and left Roland with 2 Big Blinds.


Yet it was not Roland, who finished in 3rd place but Nissim, who moved all in from the Button and got called by Tobias. Nissim's Ace9 was up against AceJack and could not improve.

The story of the final table must be Nissim Saad for now, as he managed a crazy comeback.

After getting crippled to just 3 Antes (!!) when he lost a preflop all in with KingQueen against a little bit shorter Roland Norietis' Ace9, he went all in blind for his remaining 10k and got up to 65k, as he had AceAce. He doubled up again a few hands later when he won with 108 against his opponent's Ace Spades8 Spades, hitting a 10 on the flop.

A short while later, he again doubled up when Remi Marloir put him all in with King Diamonds6 Diamonds. Nissim had 9 Clubs4 Clubs and once again he got lucky as the board ran: 5Jack DiamondsKingQueen Diamonds10.

And that's not all, as he almost doubled up again when he knocked out Ville Jantunen, as previously posted.
