Juha Helppi - 4th Place
Juha Helppi - 4th Place

The action started with Leonid Markin raising to 160,000 from under the gun. Juha Helppi made the call from the big blind and both players watched the flop come down {6-Spades}{2-Clubs}{j-Clubs}.

Helppi checked before Markin threw out a continuation bet worth 160,000. Helppi thought for a moment before raising it up to 400,000. Markin then instantly moved all in for 4.5 million which took Helppi by surprise.

The scheduled break had just started as Helppi went into the tank. A few minutes passed before Helppi began trying to get some answers.

“Do you have a good hand?” asked Helppi. “Will you show me if I call?” he added. Markin just shook his head.

“Tell me after the hand,” joked Helppi. Again Markin just shook his head.

Five minutes had passed before Markin turned to the clock before speaking out.

“Can you pause the clock. I just need to go upstairs and have a shower after this hand,” said Markin.

“You have clubs?” asked Helppi.

“I cant remember,” replied Markin.

“Can you check?” added Helppi.

“I have a rule to never look back at my cards after I go all in,” added Markin.

After an eight minute tank Helppi finally called with his 950,000 behind and the cards were tabled.

Markin: {q-Clubs}{q-Spades}
Helppi: {j-Hearts}{8-Hearts}

Helppi had run into Markin’s over pair and was not rewarded with his call when the board ran out the {3-Hearts} and {10-Diamonds}. Helppi was so eliminated in fourth place, the remaining three players are now guaranteed €355,070.

Chidwick Pressuring Markin

[user198217] • Level 20: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Stephen Chidwick raised it to 160,000 from the cut off and was called by Leonid Markin in the blinds.

The flop came down {7-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{j-Spades} and Markin checked. Chidwick reached for his chips and bet out another 225,000. Markin paused for a moment before throwing out 350,000.

“You’ve put out to much,” said the dealer, cutting out the bet.

“It was a raise. What is the minimum,” said Markin. The dealer told him the amount and Markin made it 450,000 to go.

Chichwick made the call before the {4-Clubs} dropped on the turn. Markin once again checked and watched as Chidwick promptly slid in 445,000 in chips.

Markin tanked for over a minute before releasing his hand into the muck.
