Sipila Pulls Further Ahead

zedmaster84 • Level 36: 40,000-80,000, 0 ante

Samuli "BeastsSag_A" Sipila has won nine out of the last ten hands and that included one showdown hand that went all the way, albeit it was a small pot. It started with a limp by Jarkko "Long Drink" Nystrom and Sipila checked to the {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} flop, which went check, check.

Sipila check-called a min-bet on the {8-Hearts} turn and the {q-Diamonds} river was checked again, as Sipila won the pot with {10-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{5-Spades}{2-Spades} vs {k-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}.

Nystrom Gets Closer With Aggression

zedmaster84 • Level 35: 35,000-70,000, 0 ante

Jarkko "Long Drink" Nystrom won a bigger pot when his {7-Hearts}{4-Spades}{3-Spades}{2-Hearts} made two pair on the {k-Hearts}{7-Spades}{6-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{a-Diamonds} board, as Samuli "BeastsSag_A" Sipila only had the {k-Spades}{10-Spades}{8-Hearts}{2-Spades}.

However, Sipila struck back with aggression to earn the next three pots in a row. Nystrom received a walk and opened to 154,000 on his next button. Sipila three-bet to 462,000 in order to pick up a call and bet the {a-Spades}{7-Clubs}{5-Clubs} flop for 462,000. Nystrom was having none of it and potted to force an instant fold from Sipila.

Sipila Takes the First Two Pots in Heads-Up

zedmaster84 • Level 35: 35,000-70,000, 0 ante

Jarkko "Long Drink" Nystrom raised to 154,000 and was called by Samuli "BeastsSag_A" Sipila out of the big blind. Sipila opted to check-call the {q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} flop for 101,640 and did so again for 168,723 on the {q-Clubs} turn.

Both checked the {6-Diamonds} on the river and Nystrom checked back with his {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{2-Spades}. Sipila tabled the {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{2-Hearts} for trips queens to win the first pot of heads-up.

One hand later, Sipila limped and called a raise to 210,000 by Nystrom. They headed to the{j-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{2-Hearts} flop on which Nystrom bet 169,000. Sipila raised to 548,000 and that shut down his countryman.

Samuli "BeastsSag_A" Sipila opened to 144,000 on the button and Jarkko "Long Drink" Nystrom potted to 462,000 in the big blind. Sipila peeled, bringing a {5-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} flop. Nystrom potted 954,000 and called off the last 49K.

Nystrom: {q-Spades}{4-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Sipila: {k-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{3-Clubs}
