Lasse Frost - 3rd [lace

The most interesting pot of the final table played out and it saw all three remaining players involved and at the end left Lasse Frost on the rail and and Daniel Pidun is a commanding position heading into the heads up play.

Robert Haigh opened to 400,000 from the button and Frost moved his remaining 1,580,000 in from the small blind. Pidun looked down a his cards and smiled as he put his hands behind his head. He obviously had a hand and elected to call rather than isolate. Haigh called as well.

The flop fell {5-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} and there was no chance of the pot being checked down as Pidun check-called a 400,000 bet to see the {3-Clubs} turn. Pidun checked again and Haigh fired 1,050,000 into the middle. Pidun wasn't to be pushed around though and made a quick call.

Haigh only had 2,800,000 back as the final card came as the {j-Clubs}. Pidun decided that was his time to be the aggressor and set Haigh all in. Haigh smiled knowing he was beat and had to fold. Pidun opened {a-Clubs}{7-Clubs} for the nut flush and won both pots as Frost opened {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}.
