Eevert Kokkonen

Eevert Kokkonen was knocked down to right around 124,000 when he woke up with a nice hand. Jason Mo raised to 12,000 and Kokkonen made the call. The flop came down {10-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} and Kokkonen lead out for 16,000 getting called by his opponent. The turn was the {9-Spades} and Kokkonen checked to Mo who bet 26,000 after making sure Kokkonen still had 96,000 left behind. The Finnish player tanked for a bit before making the call.

The river was the {J-Diamonds} and both players checked after which Kokkonen quickly showed his {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts} and won the pot. A couple of hands later Kokkonen raised to 12,000 and Mo put him all in for 97,000 total. Kokkonen called and showed {6-Hearts}{6-Spades}. He flipping against {K-Clubs}{9-Clubs} and the board ran out {9-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}......{6-Diamonds}. Kokkonen was almost out the door after the flop but a six on the river saved him.

Kokkonen is still trailing 194,000 to 766,000 but he is far from busted.
