Marton Czuczor raised to 900,000 and Simon Brandstrom moved all in from the big blind. Czuczor double-checked his stack and called all in for 8,775,000 in total.

Marton Czuczor: {k-Spades}{q-Clubs}
Simon Brandstrom: {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}

It was a classic flip and Czuczor needed to hit in order to get back into contention. Nothing changed on the {9-Spades}{7-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} flop and the {a-Diamonds} turn reduced the outs of Czuczor to six.

The river was a blank {5-Hearts} and the Swedish rail celebrated while Czuczor had to settle for a runner-up finish in an EPT Main Event for the second time. Czuczor claimed the biggest payday of his career with €1,253,234 and will take over the top spot in Hungary's all-time money list.

Brandstrom becomes the 11th EPT Main Event champion from Sweden and earns the trophy, top prize of €1,290,166 and the bragging rights that come along with it.

A full recap of today's action are to follow.
