The final table started with five contenders for the $200,000 top prize lead by Kyllonen himself. The Finn drew first blood at the final table as well, busting Laszlo Bujtas in fifth place. This crucial pot saw the Hungarian pro all in with a set versus Kyllonen’s wrap. Creating a pot worth 4 million chips with 7.5 million chips in play, Kyllonen hit the best possible river card as he filled up his straight.
With a commanding chip lead, Kyllonen did not make any mistakes, knocking out Robert Romanello next in fourth place. Once again., Kyllonen had a wrap with a pair, and this time he was a favorite against Romanello’s overpair. The turn gave Kyllonen trips and he sent the Welshman to the rail.
In a three-handed all Finland battle, Kyllonen kept the pace high sending Aku Joentausta to the rail in third place shortly thereafter. Kyllonen held a pretty looking king-king-queen-queen double suited against Joentausta’s aces and flopped a set of queens to bring us down to just two players.
Heads-up play lasted for 30 minutes as Parssinen managed to find a quick double up to make for an entertaining match. Kyllonen, however, kept chipping up and ultimately ended things when he flopped a set of kings versus Parssinen’s set of nines.
