Michael Addamo made consecutive final tables (and consecutive High Rollers to boot) at the WSOPE. In addition to Addamo, the elite final eight in the 100K included Dominik Nitsche, Mikita Badziakouski, Martin Kabrhel, Jan-Eric Schwippert, Julian Thomas, David Peters, Michael Addamo, and Adrian Mateos. In total, five bracelet winners were seeking another piece of bling including Addamo, who was trying to win two pieces of back-to-back bling.
With eight left in the hunt for the 100K bracelet, Mateos was the shorty with 10M. Nitsche bagged up the big stack with 53M. Badziakouski was second with 32M.
On Day 3, Michael Addamo was one of the first players eliminated. The Aussie's quest to win back-to-back WSOPE events came to a crashing halt when he was picked off in eighth place when his Ace-four were ambushed by Nitsche's pocket Kings.
Martin Kabrhel knocked out two players on the same hand when his pocket Aces held up against Dominik Nitsche's pocket Queens and Jan-Eric Schwippert's Ace-eight. Kabrhel chipped up to 51M with four to go.
Mikita Badziakouski's run ended in fourth place when he got picked off by Marty K. Ace-trey was no goot for Badz Man against Marty K's . With three remaining, Kabrhel moved into second overall, but trailed David Peters' big stack.
Julian Thomas ran sixes in eights and hit the road in third place. The German's exit set up a heads-up finale betweeen Marty K and David Peters, and Peters held a sizeable lead 147M to 42M. It didn't take long before Marty K stormed back to pull even.
Ace-king did not improve for Peters, who was bounced in second place, which paid out €1,621,960. Not too shabby, eh?
Kabrhel walked away with a score worth €2,624,340. Marty K won a bracelet last year at the 2017 WSOPE when he binked the €1,100 Super Turbo Bounty NL. This marked his second bracelet win.
Tim Adams bubbled the final table in ninth place when his pocket nines ran into Marty K's pocket Aces. Tobias Ziegler bubbled the money in 16th place when he lost a flip against fellow German Christoph Vogelsang.
