Yann Pineau opened in middle position, and Neculai Macovei three-bet to 18,500 on the button. Pineau called, followed by a check from both players on a flop of {9-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{3-Hearts}.

On the {3-Diamonds} turn, Pineau led out with a bet of 22,000, which got called by Macovei. The river was the {5-Clubs} and Pineau checked. Macovei moved all in, putting the Frenchman on the bubble at risk for his tournament life.

Pineau, who had a little over 60,000 left, went deep in the tank. The camera's, players and media staff all swarmed around Table 4 to witness the situation unfold. Nearly five minutes passed by until Pineau finally decided on a call.

The hands remained closed, as the action on the other tables wasn't done yet. The buzz of an all-in-and-a-call situation circled throughout the room, drawing even more people to the table. After a few more minutes, a densely packed crowd finally saw the hand going to showdown.

Pineau showed {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} for a pair of tens, but his dreams of winning EPT Barcelona came to a screeching halt as Macovei tabled the unexpected {5-Diamonds}{3-Spades} for a full house. The Frenchman goes home empty-handed, the other 359 players are guaranteed at least €5,630.
