Johannes Park has more lives than a cat – eluding elimination once again in a tough spot as his shove with Ad 5c on the button was called by Jussi Mattila’s Ac Th.
The board of 9s Qh Tc looked to have ended his final table barring some long shot runner runner draws however the Jd on the turn gave him some additional chop outs and then – BINK! – the 8c on the river was one of those! He survives with an amazing backdoor straight. Mattila took it well, and David Lappin in the commentary booth found the situation hilarious. “No way. This is brilliant!” he said through bouts of giggles.
