In the very next hand after Sinel Anton's elimination, Joni Jouhkimainen and Samuel Rodriguez created a 1.1 million pot preflop and saw a flop of {8-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}. It was an action flop as Rodriguez flopped two pair holding {8-Clubs}{7-Hearts} and Jouhkimainen had an up-and-down straight draw with {9-Spades}{6-Spades}.

Rodriguez's last 2.32 million ended up in the pot and the players were on their feet, especially when the {Q-Spades} turn gave Jouhkimainen an added flush draw. Much to the dismay of Rodriguez and those hoping to see a Spaniard take down an EPT for the first time, the {3-Spades} spiked on the river to complete Jouhkimainen's flush. The local player exited the stage in fifth place to a nice round of applause.
