Preflop, the table is three-handed. The blinds are 1,200,000 and 2,400,000 with a 400,000 ante. Nitsche raised to 5,000,000 from the button. Eiler called in the big blind. On the flop Eiler checked. Nitsche bet 4,000,000. Eiler called. On the turn Eiler checked. Nitsche bet 11,000,000. Eiler called. On the river Eiler checked. Nitsche checked.


Nitsche continued to put the pressure on and swell his chip lead as the table dropped to three-handed. He made a standard open from the button with a pretty suited connector. Eiler hadn’t been shy to mix it up since the beginning of the final table and called with an offsuit connector, which was actually ahead preflop. For certain Mikita Badziakouski had to be hoping the two aggressive players would knock one or the other off so he could go heads-up for the title. When the flop fell Nitsche bet with middle pair and no diamond. Eiler made a snap call with top pair and the 9©. Nitsche hit gin on the turn with trip sizes, and slid a little over pot size bet out, and Eiler called. Nitsche had to know Eiler had a piece of the board when he called the turn and some sort of diamond in his hand. The board got scarier for Nitsche’s trips when a fourth diamond fell, and he checked back to Eiler. Eiler scooped a pretty good-sized pot to climb a little closer to Nitsche’s monster stack. Badziakouski would fall in third six hands later holding eights versus Eiler’s ace-king. He would take home $1,766,000.
