Roope Salminen

Only a few minutes after agreeing to the deal and coming back from the break, Roope Salminen raised to 2,000 from the small blind. Geoffrey Mooney announced all in and Salminen called. "Okay, off to the races," the Finn said.

Mooney: {A-Hearts}{8-Clubs}
Salminen: {6-Diamonds}{6-Spades}

The Finn kept the lead on the {7-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} flop, but Mooney improved thanks to the {8-Spades} turn. It was the blank {7-Diamonds} river that sent Salminen to the rail in 3rd place and set up the all-Australian heads-up duel.
