Juha Helppi Eliminated in 3rd Place (€121,800)

Juha Helppi - 3rd Place

Fabian Quoss opened to 100,000 on the button, Juha Helppi three-bet to 280,000 from the big blind, and Quoss called. The flop fell {q-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{a-Clubs}, and Helppi led out for 200,000. Quoss tank-called.

The turn was the {7-Hearts}, and after a bit of thought, Helppi moved all in for effectively 985,000. Quoss checked his cards one last time, then called.

Helppi: {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}
Quoss: {a-Spades}{7-Spades}

The {6-Clubs} hit the river, Quoss' two pair held, and Helppi was crippled down to 235,000 chips.

"Nice turn," he sighed.

Helppi folded out of the small blind the next hand, but the hand after he open-shoved on the button. Marvin Rettenmaier called in the big blind, and the hands were opened.

Helppi: {a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}
Rettenmaier: {j-Clubs}{10-Spades}

Helppi had him crushed, but the board ran out {5-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{4-Clubs}, giving Rettenmaier a winning king-jack flush.

The two remaining players are now on a quick bathroom break.
