The Title Defender Makes His Exit

Webjoker • Level 18: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante
Jussi Nevanlinna won the 2015 MCOP

Jussi Nevanlinna is eliminated, the dream of going back to back is done.

We asked former table mate Michiel Brummelhuis what had happened. Brummelhuis told us action had folded to Nevanlinna in the small blind and he had limped in. The big blind, German player G. Garfield, raised to 18,000 and Nevanlinna had pushed all in for about 130,000. Garfield had called with {K-}{Q-} and Nevanlinna was in dire straits with {Q-}{2-}.

The board brought no help to Nevanlinna and he had to settle for a spot outside the final table for once.
