EPT10 Sanremo: After short but punishing day, Jordan Westmorland leads ahead of final table
With Jorma Nuutinen's departure from the stage, at speed and in pain, play in the Main Event came to a swift end this afternoon. The Finn had been crippled with jacks against Emmanuel Pariset's shove with pocket aces, a hand that left the former with just four big blinds. He found an ace on the next hand and got his chips in. Looking at 100,000 more to call Victoria Coren-Mitchell did so with six-four. Nuutinen looked on, apparently safe until the river brought a six, ending his title hopes and the day's play. It had all been completed in less than four and a half hours.
