Seat 10 (who wished to stay anonymous at this final table) called from middle position before Nils Tolpingrud raised to 400,000 from the big blind. Seat 10 called.
The flop came 4♦ 8♠ J♦ and Tolpingrud continued for 325,000. Seat 10 then moved all in for 1,780,000. Tolpingrud thought for a moment and called.
Seat 10: K♣ 7♣
Tolpingrud: Q♥ Q♠
Tolpingrud made the correct call with his over pair leading Seat 10’s king-high.
Unfortunately for Tolpingrud, the board ran out the 5♣ then 6♥, improving Seat 10 to a straight and the winning hand.
The following hand, Giovanni Giurdanella raised to 240,000 from the button, before Tolpingrud moved all in for 635,000 from the small blind. Giurdanella called.
Giurdanella: Q♥ 8♠
Tolpingrud: A♠ J♦
The board ran out Q♣ 4♦ 7♠ 3♠ 8♣, improving Giurdanella to two pair by the river, resulting in Tolpingrud hitting the rail in ninth place.
