Joni Jouhkimainen had a bit of a rough time playing 3-way after the chop. He fought hard against the two bigger stacks, but in the end fell when his pre-flop all-in was called by François Billard in the big blind.
Billard faded a lot of cards on the river, and shows up to the duel with a pretty good lead:
- François Billard – 378,500,000
- Kevin Rabichow – 142,500,000
Let the duel begin! The 2 finalists are now playing head to head for $212K and the trophy!
