Sampo Ryynanen

Sampo Ryynanen is our new chip leader after taking almost all of Alfonso Amendola's stack and all of Timothy Reilly's.

He claimed Reilly's chips for his own whilst holding {A-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds} t Reilly's {10-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} on a {6-}{4-}{2-} fop that had two diamonds on it, then almost scalped Amendola in a huge coinflip {A-}{k-} versus {q-}{q-}.

Amendola lost the rest of his stack with {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} against Ryynanen's {k-Spades}{10-Diamonds} when the board ran out {9-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{q-Spades}{j-Hearts}.
