Hand #40: From the cutoff, Mats Karlsson raised to 130,000 with {J-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} and Peter Ockenden called with {A-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} on the button.

The flop {9-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{3-Spades} promised fireworks and Karlsson continued with 200,000. Ockenden raised to 550,000, Karlsson thought for the better part of a minute before moving all in. Ockenden removed his sunglasses, sighed, and called it off.

With 48% equity, Ockenden was racing for his tournament life in a 3 million chip pot.

The {10-Diamonds} on the turn gave Karlsson a better top pair, and Ockenden needed an ace or nine on the river to stay alive. The river {K-Diamonds} was neither, ending Ockenden's deep run in 5th place.

The PokerStars qualifier, who won his seat for the EPT Main Event for just €27, turned his small investment into €104,340, by far the biggest score of his poker career.
