Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Ladies Spell Trouble For Helppi

Juha Helppi Eliminated

Jim McCrink was all in preflop for his last 765,000 against Juha Helppi. McCrink tabled {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} which didn't please Helppi as he would need some help with his {10-Hearts}{10-Spades}.

It didn't arrive as the board ran out {J-Spades}{4-Hearts}{5-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{K-Spades}. McCrink doubled up to 1.8 million to leave Helppi in a world of hurt with just 360,000.

A few moments later Helppi's last chips were in the middle preflop with {A-Clubs}{8-Clubs} but once again he ran into the ladies as Gianni Direnzo tabled {Q-Clubs}{Q-Spades}.

The board ran out {8-Hearts}{6-Spades}{5-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{10-Spades} and Helppi is sent to the rail.
