The final day of six players began with Chris Day leading in chips with 250,200. Niall Farrell was first to go as his pocket sixes were no good against the pocket ten’s of Kyle Maguire.

Jan Przysucha moved all in from big blind with K-10 and was called by Aido with Q-Q. A 10 on the flop was no good for Jan that fell in 5th place and €4,890.

In one of the best plays of the day,  Aido with A-K and Maquire with Q-10 went from raise to raise and finally all in on a board og 2-4-7-8-2. Aido with A high took a big lead and on the next hand he eliminated Maquire and left him in 2nd place.
