Preflop, with three players remaining and blinds of 100,000-200,000 with an ante of 25,000, Christoph Vogelsang raised to 440,000 from the button. Michael Addamo called from the big blind. On the flop Addamo checked, and Vogelsang bet 316,500. Addamo check-raised to 1,120,000, and Vogelsang called. On the turn Addamo bet 2,194,469, and Vogelsang raised all-in for 7,409,740. Addamo called.


Michael Addamo had a huge chip lead on the money bubble that he lost in a massive pot with aces and nines against a better two pair. This time around it was Addamo who won a decisive hand with two pair against an inferior two pair to eliminate 2017 Super High Roller Bowl champion Christoph Vogelsang in third place and surge into the chip lead going into heads-up play. The hand began with Vogelsang raising from the button with A-4 offsuit. Addamo defended his big blind with A-7 offsuit and flopped top two pair. Addamo checked to Vogelsang, who made a continuation bet of around one-third the pot. Addamo then sprung a check-raise, fast-playing his strong hand with the likely hope of inflating the pot against some A-X holdings of Vogelsang. The German made the call and the 4™ on the turn gave him aces and fours for an inferior two pair. Addamo kept on firing, betting just over two-third pot with his top two pair. Vogelsang would be left with around 5.2 million in his stack and nearly 7.7 million in the pot if he were to call. He decided to raise all-in instead, shoving for 7,409,740 total. Addamo made the call relatively quickly, having Vogelsang covered by just 328,240, or less than two big blinds. Vogelsang was unable to hit one of the two remaining fours in the deck and was knocked out in third place, earning $525,000 for his latest deep run in a high roller event. Addamo was able to convert the lead he earned by taking down this hand into the title, securing $1,310,715 after he defeated Florian Loehnert heads-up for the win. Loehnert was awarded $805,000 for his runner-up showing.
