Début juillet 2019 à Las Vegas,Juha Helppi touchait enfin le graal. Le Finlandais avait dominé 117 adversaires pour remporter son premier bracelet WSOP à l'occasion du Limit Championships à 10.000$ l'entrée.

Helppi abandonnait alors sa place sur la liste des "meilleurs joueurs de poker sans victoire aux World Series Of Poker", il a ajouté une nouvelle breloque sur le Pot Limit Omaha Championship à 5000$ qui s'est déroulé sur GGPoker dans la nuit de mardi à mercredi. Là encore, Helppi a prouvé son talent face aux meilleurs joueurs du monde pour encaisser près de 300.000$.

Le tournoi a rassemblé 328 joueurs qui ont généré un prizepool de 1,58 million de dollars. Disputé en 6-Max, l'événement s'est terminé par une finale à 9 joueurs où se trouvaient quelques champions du jeu. Jens Kyllonen, Alex Difelice ou Mike Watson n'ont rien pu faire, tout comme l'Espagnol Sergi Reixach.

Jens Kyllonen a fait le ménage en début de TF avant que Watson ne prenne le relais pour sortir Reixach (7e). Chipleader lors de la fin de tournoi, Yuri Dzivielevski a vu son deep-run s'arrêter quelques minutes après, éliminé par Kyllonen.

Le Finlandais a pourtant été le suivant dans le rail, sorti par Belarmino De Souza sur une quinte (5e). Après un plan à 4 d'une heure, le Canadien Mike Watson a chuté contre le futur runner-up après un coup excitant. De Souza a call en étant devant au flop, la turn a donné quinte au vainqueur du PokerStars Caribbean Adventures avant que la rivière n'apporte un Full House au Brésilien !

De Souza ne va profiter de son scalp que 5 minutes, éliminé préflop par Helppi avec {q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{6-Spades}{2-Hearts} contre {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}{q-Spades}{5-Spades} chez le Finlandais. Légèrement derrière à l'entame de l'ultime duel, Helppi a repris la tête avant que les derniers jetons de Cortes ne partent sur un flop {10-Hearts}{9-Spades}{5-Diamonds}.

Helppi avait check-raise avec {10-Clubs}{10-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}, Cortes payant avec {9-Hearts}{7-Spades}{5-Spades}{3-Diamonds} pour ne trouver aucune aide au tournant ni à la rivière... Il était alors 5 heures du matin en Andorre et 6 heures du matin en Finlande, l'heure d'aller se coucher !

As Jesus Cortes hovered around 10 blinds in the new level, he had portion of his chips in to the {10-Hearts}{9-Spades}{5-Diamonds} flop already and that's when Juha Helppi applied the pressure and the following showdown took place.

Jesus Cortes: {9-Hearts}{7-Spades}{5-Spades}{3-Diamonds}
Juha Helppi: {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}

Not long ago Helppi had doubled into a commanding lead when he flopped top set and had done so again to leave Cortes in desperate shape.

The {k-Diamonds} turn immediately left the Spaniard drawing dead and he quickly typed in a "gg" in chat even before the {k-Clubs} river officially ended his run.

Cortes takes home a consolation prize of $213,270.25 while Helppi has doubled his gold bracelet tally and earned the top prize of $290,285.58,

Two Doubles and a Boat for Cortes

zedmaster84 • Niveau 30: 80,000-160,000, 0 ante

Jesus Cortes dropped down to all but fewer than three blinds in the new level and his first all-in showdown was as follows.

Jesus Cortes: {k-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{2-Clubs}
Juha Helppi: {k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}

The board came {8-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{8-Spades} and Cortes doubled.

He would do so again when they got it in after a {a-Hearts}{7-Spades}{2-Spades} flop as Cortes check-called all-in.

Jesus Cortes: {a-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}
Juha Helppi: {10-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{4-Clubs}

The {2-Hearts} turn made things clear and the {9-Spades} river didn't matter.

Up next, a pot of 1.6 million emerged to the {5-Spades}{2-Spades}{2-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{j-Spades} river and Helppi checked behind with {j-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} for a straight, Cortes won the next pot with {k-Spades}{q-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{4-Spades} for a full house.

Juha Helppi doubles into commanding lead

Juha Helppi managed to scrap back and nearly double without any major showdown but that would all but change just before the blinds went up.

Helppi min-raised and Jesus Cortes called to see a flop of {k-Hearts}{j-Spades}{2-Hearts} on which Cortes check-called 240,000. After the {3-Spades} turn, Cortes check-shoved and Helppi snap-called.

Juha Helppi: {k-Clubs}{k-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}
Jesus Cortes: {k-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{7-Spades}{3-Diamonds}

The {9-Hearts} river was already insignificant as Helppi had the checkmark with top set.

Cortes In Control So Far

zedmaster84 • Niveau 29: 60,000-120,000, 0 ante

Jesus Cortes won most pots in heads-up including the two biggest hands so far against Juha Helppi and pulled into a comfortable lead.

A limped pot saw Helppi bet the {9-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{3-Spades} flop and Cortes check-called a min-bet to then check-call 480,000 on the {j-Hearts} turn. They checked the {k-Diamonds} river and Helppi's [10h107h5d] were no good as Cortes held {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{5-Hearts}.

Belarmino "Iseey0urcard" De Souza Eliminated in 3rd Place ($156,688)

zedmaster84 • Niveau 29: 60,000-120,000, 0 ante

Juha Helppi made it 240,000 to go from the button and Belarmino "Iseey0urcard" De Souza three-bet the pot to 780,000 in the small blind with fewer than two big blinds behind. Helppi four-bet and De Souza called all-in.

Belarmino "Iseey0urcard" De Souza: {q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{6-Spades}{2-Hearts}
Juha Helppi: {a-Spades}{q-Spades}{q-Clubs}{5-Spades}

The {k-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{4-Spades} flop and {8-Diamonds} turn changed nothing as Helppi was freerolling and an ace on the river would seal the fate for De Souza. Indeed it was the {a-Diamonds} that appeared as final card and that sent the Brazilian out in 3rd place for a payday of $156,687.74.
