PokerStars Strategy: Learn to smash it like Sami 'Lrslzk' Kelopuro

Sami 'Lrslzk' Kelopuro sits alongside Ilari Sahamies as one of the most feared Finnish players around. A player better known for being a resident in the nosebleed cash games, Kelopuro also has plenty of tournament talent to bring to the table. The Finn won the 2011 SCOOP Main Event for $504,691.09 and he almost managed to add another quarter of the Grand Slam this Sunday when he final tabled the PokerStars Sunday Million.

Unfortunately for Kelopuro, things went pretty horribly for him around 21'20" (even if you don't watch the whole video you really should scoot through to watch that hand). Sure, Kelopuro picks up some good hands and flops some sets but it's how he plays them that's really worth paying attention to.
