Kristian Tolvhed Eliminated in 3rd Place (€56,950)

Exits are like buses. No, not long, grubby and boasting an inch of urine, but rather in the sense that you wait all day for one, and then two come along at once. In this case, I was still penning the exit for the fourth place finisher, when I was forced to leap from my seat like an epileptic salmon to news of another departure.

This time the unfortunate man was Sweden's Kristian Tolvhed, all in and in need of assistance with Jh-7h versus the Ad-9s of Andre Santos. The Poker Gods teased with a 2s-Kh-4h flop, but ultimately failed to deliver on the 6s turn and Ts river.

With the Swede gone, we are now down to our final two warriors, with the conclusion of this week's Betsson Estoril LIVE poker bonanza potentially just one hand away.

Kristian is 32 years old and lives in Lund in Sweden with his girlfriend. He's currently a full-time teacher and this is only his second time playing a big live poker tournament, the first being when he played EPT Copenhagen last year. He loves sports and plays a lot of tennis and floorball to keep fit.
