Meklin & Out

Disaster has befallen Tuukka Meklin after he went up against Teemu Leppälahti.

I only caught the very tail end of the showdown so can’t tell you when the chips went in (I strongly suspect it was on the flop), but the cards looked like so:

Meklin: 6c-9c
Leppälahti: Ah-8h

Board: 6h 9d 7h 8d 3h

Meklin’s flopped two pair wasn’t enough to defeat Leppälahti’s rivered flush, and the former was reduced to just 2k while the latter doubled up to over 40k. Sure enough, a hand or two later the last of Meklin’s stack went into the middle and never came out again – busto.
