Helppi's Dream Over

Jaxon • Level 14: 60,000-120,000, 0 ante
Juha Helppi

Juha Helppi entered today as the chip leader in hopes of securing his third WSOP gold bracelet and his second this year at GGPoker.

Unfortunately for the Finn, he will instead have to settle with the 65th place prize of $2,580.

Helppi opened to 360,000 from under the gun and was called by Phil Kessel in the big blind.

Kessel checked after the {7-Spades}{a-Spades}{j-Diamonds} came on the flop and Helppi bet 585,000. Kessel jammed more than enough to cover the nearly 1.1 million chips Helppi had behind and got a call.

Juha Helppi: {2-Spades}{7-Hearts}{k-Spades}{k-Hearts}
Phil Kessel: {a-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{6-Spades}{q-Spades}

Kessel won the hand after the {j-Hearts} came on the turn followed by the {9-Clubs} on the river.
