Nitsche Staring at the Abyss

Oh dear, that's not the way Dominik Nitsche would've wanted to finish the tournament today.

They had been a raise to 1,300 with Theofanis Poziopoylos flat-calling before Nitsche moved all in from the button for 11,775. The initial raiser folded but Poziopoylos asked for a count before deciding to make the call.

Poziopoylos: {J-Hearts}{10-Hearts}
Nitsche: {K-Spades}{K-Clubs}

Poziopoylos flopped the world when it came {A-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} and then when the {K-Diamonds} came on the turn followed by the {9-Spades} on the river, the young German was eliminated.

Shocked, Nitsche stood there for several minutes saying, "Did that really just happened?"
