Pasi Sormunen Eliminated in 5th Place (€253,000)

Pasi Sormunen - 5th Place

For the past two years, two Finns have made the final table. Last year they finished in second and third place, and those positions won't be improved upon as Pasi Sormunen has just fallen in fifth place.

It happened when he opened from early position with the {k-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} only to face a three-bet from Luca Fiorini, who picked up the {a-Spades}{k-Clubs} in the small blind. Sormunen thought long and hard before announcing that he was all in for 4.72 million and he was snap-called by Fiorini.

Sormunen knew he was in trouble even before the cards were tabled, and indeed it was a bad spot. That said, the {9-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{8-Spades} flop made things extremely interesting as Sormunen picked up a flush draw. The {Q-Spades} turn was a miss, meaning he had 12 outs he could hit on the river. The dealer burned one last time and put out the {Q-Hearts}. The lady was no help to the Finn and he exited the tournament in fifth place for €253,000.
