Andoni Larrabe was the first player from Spain to make the World Series of Poker main event final table since Carlos Mortensen won it all back in 2001, but the 22-year-old poker player couldn’t do better than sixth place when all was said and done.

Larrabe lost most of his stack in a confrontation with Billy Pappas and spent several orbits trading folds with fellow short stack Martin Jacobson before finally making a stand.

Jorryt Van Hoof raised the button for 1.8 million and Larrabe moved all in for 8.325 million. Van Hoof made the call with KHeart Suit5Heart Suit, which was ahead of Larrabe’s JClub Suit10Club Suit.

The board fell KSpade Suit8Diamond Suit3Heart Suit8Heart Suit6Diamond Suit and Larrabe was eliminated in sixth place, earning $1,622,080.

Larrabe was active early on, but was forced to tighten up as he got shorter. Overall, he played 26 of the 140 hands he was dealt, raising 15 times. He saw six showdowns, winning three and losing three.

The youngest member of the 2014 November Nine now has more than $2 million in career live tournament earnings.
