Event 13: $5,300 Australian Heads Up Championship

Eugene Katchalov: 0 vs. Andrew Lichtenberger: 1

It's been a long, hard battle between Eugene Katchalov and Andrew Lichtenberger, but Lichtenberger has taken first honours in the space of three hands.

Katchalov moved all in with {a-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} and Lichtenberger called with {10-Spades}{8-Spades}. The board ran out {9-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{q-Spades}{3-Clubs}{5-Clubs} which was good enough for Katchalov to make the stacks even.

Katchalov was then crippled in the second hand after moving in with {q-Diamonds}{j-Spades} against Lichtenberger's {9-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}.

Lichtenberger managed to catch trips on the board of {2-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{5-Spades}{j-Diamonds}, then sealed the deal a short time later when he hit a queen with {q-?}{7-?} against Katchalov's {a-?}{j-?}.

Advantage Lichtenberger, 1-0.
