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.
