Jarvela was ahead but only slightly. Things good good after a flop of 9Heart Suit7Diamond Suit4Spade Suit and even better on the turn when the 6Diamond Suit opened. But the KSpade Suit on the river ended Jarvela’s tournament as the third place finisher for $45,760.

Considering Jarvela had the short stack when play resumed nine and a half hours ago, his run was quite impressive.
