Angel Guillen - Winner Of Event #32
Only a week or so after he finished 2nd to Kevin Stammen in a $2,500 No Limit Hold'em event, Angel Guillen has managed to outlast 1,533 other players to claim his very first WSOP gold bracelet.

Mika Paasonen came to the final table with the chip lead, as well as the heads up but the lead changed several times and Guillen had his opponent all in twice. Guillen managed to pick up cards where it mattered and won the crucial big pots that are so important in a one-on-one situation.

Finally, after an epic five hour heads up battle, the Mexican has won out in the early hours of the morning.

Congratulations to Angel Guillen!

Mika Paasonen Eliminated in 2nd Place ($326,203)

Mika Paasonen - 2nd Place
Mika Paasonen - 2nd Place
We were starting to wonder whether this titanic duel would ever end but it has. A raise from Paasonen was called before {3-Clubs} {4-Clubs} {K-Spades} flop came down. Guillen led out for 250,000 before Paasonen moved all in and received an instant call.

Paasonen -- {K-Diamonds} {10-Diamonds}
Guillen -- {3-Spades} {3-Diamonds}

The turn came {A-Diamonds} and river {2-Clubs} before Guillen's supporters on the rail went mad and mobbed him.

A word or two has to go to Mika Paasonen. He fought his way through his opponent's friends to congratulate his conqueror. After around five hours of heads up it's not nice to lose but he did himself proud by sticking in there despite being the short stack for most of the match.

Longer Than Return of the King

A flop of {7-Clubs} {6-Spades} {5-Hearts} was checked before Guillen checked the {7-Diamonds} turn. Paasonen bet 175,000 and Guillen check-raised to 475,000. Paasonen then moved all in and Guillen quickly folded.

Everyone is looking tired now.

Nice Hand to Find!

Paasonen got the last of his chips in the very next hand and was called before showing he'd only woken up with {A-Diamonds} {K-Spades} to Guillen's {Q-Clubs} {7-Hearts}.

The board ran {K-Hearts} {7-Diamonds} {9-Clubs} {5-Spades} {2-Spades} to double him to 2,000,000.

Paasonen Crippled

Guillen raised it up and was called so a {K-Clubs} {5-Diamonds} {4-Clubs} flop came down before Paasonen led out for 350,000. It was called before the {8-Hearts} came and Paasonen check called a 600,000 bet. The river {3-Hearts} saw the Finn check once more and this time he faced a 750,000 bet. It took him a lot longer but he called only to muck upon seeing the {A-Diamonds} {A-Spades} of Guillen.

Passonen below a million chips now.

Paasonen Back In It

Mika Paasonen is building back up over 3.6 million after winning a showdown with {9-Clubs} {7-Hearts} on a {K-Hearts} {8-Spades} {7-Clubs} {6-Spades} {3-Hearts} board.

Both players, perhaps showing signs of fatigue, have really stopped 3-betting so much and are playing much slower.

Level: 30

Blinds: 60,000/120,000

Ante: 10,000

All In All In

Mika Paasonen raised it up before Angel Guillen moved in over the top. Paasonen snap called with {A-Diamonds} {K-Clubs} and was in better shape this time as Guillen had {A-Hearts} {10-Diamonds}.

The flop ran {J-Clubs} {6-Clubs} {4-Clubs} {5-Hearts} {8-Clubs} to double the Finn up to 3,100,000. Guillen on 6,000,000.

Guillen Wins More

Guillen raises to 200,000 and Paasonen calls.

They both check the {A-Clubs} {6-Hearts} {2-Diamonds} before Paasonen bets out on the {3-Hearts} turn and Guillen calls.

The river is the {5-Spades} and Paasonen checks, Guillen checks behind and shows {A-Spades} {10-Clubs} which is good.
