Mateos Eliminates Helppi

blaisebourgeois • Level 6: Blinds 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante
Adrian Mateos

Juha Helppi opened to 4,500 from the button and Sirzat Hissou called from the small blind. Adrian Mateos went over the top of both players and Helppi called off for roughly 35,000 while Hissou, with 38,500 chips behind, tossed his cards away.

Juha Helppi: {a-Spades}{k-Spades}
Adrian Mateos: {k-Clubs}{j-Hearts}

Helppi was in prime position to get the full double up from the Spaniard but the flop came {8-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} to fire Mateos into the lead.

The Finland star received a lot of help on the {7-Spades} turn but the {k-Hearts} eliminated him from the tournament, at least for now.
