The first hand of nine-handed play saw Jordan Westmorland open under the gun plus two for 80,000. In the hijack it was Emmanuel Pariset who, besides one call and check-fold with pocket nines, we hadn't seen doing anything besides shoving allin before the flop today. He wouldn't break with tradition and quickly shoved allin for 890,000.
The cutoff and button folded, but Jorma Nuutinen in the small blind showed some interest. Eventually he went with it, leaving himself with just 150,000 behind would he lose. The big blind and Westmorland folded, and a 1,945,000 show down was at hand.
Jorma Nuutinen tabled his and Emmanuel Pariset slammed his on the table, fist pumping while doing it.
The flop pretty much settled it with . While commentator Vanessa Selbst saw room for running hearts, it was the popping up on the turn. Still way ahead, with Nuutinen only having one out, Piraset took his hands to his head in despair; would the jack of clubs pop up? That one outer would stay in the deck, instead the completed the board and Nuutinen was left severely short stacked.
