Max Heinzelmann Eliminated in 2nd Place (€600,000)

• Level 31: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante
Max Heinzelmann

Rupert Elder has just won EPT San Remo after admitting that his opponent actually played better than him during the heads up encounter. Spare a thought for poor Max Heinzelmann, he was one card away from being the new champion, but now has to settle for his second number two spot in a few short weeks.

The trophy will stay on the British Isles after this final hand.

Max Heinzelmann was first to act and he open shoved and Rupert Elder asked for a count before deciding it was his time to take his shot.

Elder{a-Diamonds} {5-Clubs}
Heinzelmann{q-Diamonds} {5-Spades}

Heinzelmann didn't even have two live cards and was going to need some serious help.

Board: {3-Spades} {2-Clubs} {7-Clubs} {10-Hearts} {k-Spades}

The dream for Heinzelmann was over but he did have over €1 million in combined prize money as consolation (EPT Berlin and San Remo).

Well done Rupert Elder.
