After pulling off one of the most improbable comebacks in EPT history, Dutchman Derk van Luijk won the Main Event in Monte Carlo, Principality of Monaco. The casual player won a total of €1,000,000.

Van Luijk was the smallest stack when the FT opened, hitting a pair of aces on his first pre-flop all-in. With the advantage of A♣J♣, he was saved by 2♣8♦6♣J♥J♦ on the board and held on to win in 9 hands.

van Luijk was also just one card away from being eliminated. 3 hands. On a J♥4♠3♣5♥ board, he called an all-in move from American Rania Nasreddine, who had more chips and 5♦4♣. The European player, dominated by J♣10♣, saw the river card of 10♦ prevent his downfall.

In a long one-on-one duel with Boris Angelov, van Luijk suffered losses under the deck. He led with K♥K♣ and immediately called after Boris Angelov 4-bet all-in. The Bulgarian found the dream board Q♥5♠Q♣Q♠7♠ with AChecks and took the pot to regain the lead.

Although Angelov subsequently lost the lead, he managed to regain the lead and win easily, leaving his opponent with only 10 BBS. van Luijk didn’t give up, doubling his chips several times until he was close to winning.

On the final hand, van Luijk went all-in for 13 bets before Angelov went all-in. Playing A♠Q♥ against K♠7♣, van Luijk was not surprised that Q♠J♣4♠3♦9♠ was ahead and shouted victory.
