Nicolas Levi Eliminated in 3rd Place (€270,000)

Nicolas Levi - 3rd Place

From the button, Nicolas Levi raised all in for around 1.5 million. Martin Finger snap-called from the small blind and David Boyaciyan folded from the big blind. Hands please.

Finger: {A-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}
Levi: {8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}

The flop came down {8-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{3-Clubs} and Levi took the lead with a pair of eights. Wait one second, though. Finger did have a world of outs with two overs and a flush draw holding the ace of clubs in his hand.

The turn {A-Hearts} smacked Finger with the lead. Then, as Levi began to put on his jacket in preparation, but really in hopes of jinxing Finger's chances, the river landed with the {J-Spades}. That finished things off and Levi was eliminated in third place for €270,000.

Levi shook the hands of the two remaining players, wished them luck and headed to the payout desk. He had a big smile on his face the entire time.
