The Poker Masters Online PLO Series on partypoker saw its third event wrap up last night when it was Jens Kyllonen who mounted an improbable comeback versus Jonathan Depa. Depa lead for most of the tournament but after a two-hour heads-up battle, he waved the white flag to his Finnish opponent. Marcello Margiliano remains the overall standings leader with 280 points out of two cashes ahead of Depa. The series champion will receive the Poker Masters Purple Jacket and a $50,000 entry into the series-ending Main Event.

The action at the final table of Event #6 started with the elimination of Veselin Karakitukov who ran top pair into the better top pair of Andriy Lyuobvetskiy to send him to the rail in sixth place. Eelis Parssinen from Finland was next to go when he shoved it all into the middle with pocket aces only to get sent packing by Jonathan Depa’s jack-ten-seven-six with three spades. Parssinen was short-stacked and Depa ended up flopping a straight to send him to the rail.
The Jonathan Depa show continues four-handed as he held an enormous chip lead, sitting on more chips than the other three players combined at this stage. High Stakes Pot Limit Omaha legend Sami Kelopuro was next to go as king-king-ten-nine wasn’t kind to him. Depa called Kelopuro’s three-bet and on a three-four-queen flop with two spades the remaining money went in. Depa tabled straight and flush draws, hit his flush draw, and sent Kelopuro to the rail.
Three-handed, Depa had 6.7 million chips versus Kyllonen’s 1 million and Lyubovetskiy’s 291,000. Kyllonen ultimately sent Lyubovetskiy to the rail when his queens held up versus jacks to start an epic two-hour heads-up battle. After a tough back-and-forth it was Kyllonen who came out on top as he flopped Depa nearly dead when Kyllonen’s king-queen-queen-six ended up all in against ace-ten-seven-six of Depa. The flop brought three eights, giving Kyllonen a full house and a hammerlock on the hand.

Chip leader Jonathan Depa just recorded another elimination on Table 2. Short stack Aku Joentausta three-bet pre and shoved for just under pot after the flop. Depa called and instantly improved to Broadway.
Depa also had Joentausta’s flush draw dominated – so the Fin was drawing to just a chop. It didn’t come and Joentausta was eliminated in 8th place.
Event #3 is now on the bubble with just over 10 minutes remaining in Level 14.
The biggest pot of the tournament just played out on Table 2 between Andras Nemeth and Jonathan Depa. Action was picked up after Nemeth bet the flop, Depa raised, and Nemeth moved all-in.
The chip leader flopped a set and Nemeth was in trouble with top two pair. The runout didn’t help the Hungarian and Depa is now over 2,500,000.
Short stack Yuri Dzivielevski got all-in on the flop and Andriy Lyubovetskiy called. Dzivielevski had outs, but needed a lot of help after Lyubovetskiy improved to two pair on the turn. The river bricked and Dzivielevski was eliminated in 10th place.
The chips got in the middle on the flop, with Jonathan Depa holding a set and Andras Nemeth holding kings. Depa (unnecessarily) improved to a flush to win the pot – which put him atop the leaderboard with almost 1,500,000.
Action was picked up on Table 1, with Andriy Lyubovetskiy raising BK on the flop.
The Bulgarian replied by putting Lyubovetskiy all-in and the cards were tabled.
It was a set over set encounter and Lyubovetskiy was on the right side of it. He’s now playing a top stack with more than 1,400,000.
