Mateusz Moolhuizen started the day in the middle of the pack, but could not make much happen in the first level today. In the end it was a lost flip that essentially sealed his fate.
Frenchman Julien Stropoli moved all-in from early position with 7♠ 7♥ for 4.6m (roughly 15 big blnds). Behind him Mateusz found A♠ Q♠ and moved all-in as well.
The board fell Q♣ 7♣ 6♠ Q♥ 9♣ giving Stropoli a full house and doubling him up.
Moolhuizen was left with 6 big blinds despite hitting trips and after one more orbit and the blinds going up, Moolhuizen found himself on his very last lifeline.
He moved all-in from UTG with Q♣ 9♦ and in the small blind Maxime Canevet called with A♦ 9♣. Moolhuizen was dominated and the board fell A♠ Q♦ 6♥ J♣ 3♣ and now we’re down to 7 players.
Unlucky ending for the Dutch player who hit the board twice and still couldn’t win the hands.
