5-Way Deal, Five 6-Figure Payouts!

GG Gustav: Vadenbring Vanquished in 7th (€41,000)

The next all-in followed shortly after and it was the Swede Gustav Vadenbring, now the super short stack at the table.

Urbonas raised to 3m and it folded to Ostergaard. With 7.5m left, Ostergaard just called the re-raise out of position. Flop: […]
