EPT10 London Champ Robin Ylitalo Eliminated in 12th Place (€29,250)

Chad_Holloway • Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Robin Ylitalo - 12th Place

Back in October, Robin Ylitalo won the PokerStars.com EPT London Main Event for £560,980. He was hoping to capture another EPT title here in Vienna, but those dreams were just crushed by Team PokerStars Pro Jonathan Duhamel.

It happened when Ylitalo opened for 35,000 only to have Duhamel move all in from the small blind. Ylitalo quickly called off for right around 290,000.

Ylitalo: {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}
Duhamel: {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}

Ylitalo was in dire straits, and he seemed to know his time had come when the {7-Spades}{3-Spades}{8-Spades} flop failed to help him. The {2-Spades} turn put four spades on the board, meaning a fifth on the river would result in a chop. Ylitalo paused to see if one would come, but it didn't as instead the {J-Diamonds} peeled off.
