Alain Saka Eliminated in 2nd Place (€115,000)

Ermanno Di Nicola limped in from the button and called when Alain Saka made it 4,000,000 from the big blind.

Saka jammed for 17,000,000 on the 8 of Diamonds, 5 of Diamonds, 4 of Diamonds, flop and Di Nicola snap-called as the covering stack.

Di Nicola was ahead with a pair of fives, while also having a superior flush draw to Saka. The Polish player needed to find a queen or an ace on the turn or river to survive once more.

The 8 of Clubs, turn and 4 of Clubs, river saw Di Nicola hold out and confirmed him as the winner of this year’s Colossus. Di Nicola celebrated with his partner on the rail and shook hands with Saka in a show of good sportsmanship.
