Jesus Cortes

As Jesus Cortes hovered around 10 blinds in the new level, he had portion of his chips in to the {10-Hearts}{9-Spades}{5-Diamonds} flop already and that's when Juha Helppi applied the pressure and the following showdown took place.

Jesus Cortes: {9-Hearts}{7-Spades}{5-Spades}{3-Diamonds}
Juha Helppi: {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}

Not long ago Helppi had doubled into a commanding lead when he flopped top set and had done so again to leave Cortes in desperate shape.

The {k-Diamonds} turn immediately left the Spaniard drawing dead and he quickly typed in a "gg" in chat even before the {k-Clubs} river officially ended his run.

Cortes takes home a consolation prize of $213,270.25 while Helppi has doubled his gold bracelet tally and earned the top prize of $290,285.58,
