It ended up being a very interesting final table of the EPT Barcelona Main Event this weekend as famous players such as Ilari Sahamies and John Juanda were on it. Unfortunately Juanda was the first player to hit the rail and he received €76,100 for his 8th place.

Things went better for Ilari Sahamies as he made it to heads up against Mikalai Pobal. Just a short while into the heads-up play, Sahamies raised to 600,00 on the button with 9Spade5Spade. Pobal reraised to 1.6 million with ADiamondAHeart and Sahamies decided to go all in for his remaining 10.485 million in chips. Pobal made the call straight away.

The flop ASpadeQHeart4Diamond made things even worse for Sahamies and now he needed a runner-runner flush to stay alive. But the JClub landed on the turn and the tournament was over for the Finnish poker pro. The river card KSpade completed the board and Mikalai Pobal was officially crowned the winner and received €1,007,500. Sahamies received €629,700 for his second place finish.

I find that really ironic that Ilari made to heads up and then went AI with a major donk call.

Well done to both though, thats one hell of a nice payday.

Ilari will have blown it all by now though...
