EPT Baden: And another Swede mashed
PokerStars qualifier Jonas Molander has been busted in 7th place. He had been nursing a short stack for some time, and with the blinds just up to 8,000-16,000, with a running ante of 2,000, he decided enough was enough. Perhaps any hand would do, but in the end Jonas pushed from the button with Q-8 hearts for his last 155,000.
Waiting in the big blind was Ben Johnson, another PokerStars player. He asked for a count, dwelled, dwelled a little more, then called, showing A-J spades. He was ahead, and the flop of K-K-3 rainbow, followed by a 5 and a 10 sent Jonas home with €62,890 in his back poket.
Johnson has regained chip power now, along with Daniel Dodet of Belgium.
