Joachim Bjorum Hillestad Eliminated in 12th Place (€3,350)

Jaxon • Level 22: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante
Joachim Bjorum Hillestad

We caught up with the hand on the turn with the board reading {a-Hearts}{j-Spades}{3-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} and about 300,000 in the pot. Joachim Bjorum Hillestad bet 110,000 and Mathias Siljander called.

The {10-Spades} completed the board on the river and Hillestad checked. Siljander jammed over the top more than covering the approximate 500,000 Hillestad had behind and got a call.

Siljander turned over {K-Spades}{q-Diamonds} for the nut-straight and Hillestad never showed his hand and headed to the cashier to collect the 12th place prize of €3,350.

Meanwhile, Siljander's chip leading stack has grown to a massive 3.8 million in chips.
