Event 13: $5,300 Australian Heads Up Championship

Sam Vakili: 1 vs. Vanessa Selbst: 0

Quarter Final

It didn't take long for Sam Vakili to take the first game in this match against Vanessa Selbst.

Vakili raised to 300 before the flop from the button, only to see Selbst reraise to 850. Vakili four-bet it to 3,050, Selbst moved all in and Vakili snap-called.

Vakili: {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds}
Selbst: {k-Hearts}{q-Spades}

Selbst overtook Vakili in a big way when the flop came down {q-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}, but the lead was taken back when Vakili spiked the {a-Diamonds} on the turn for the flush.

Down to either a king or a queen on the river, the {2-Clubs} bricked on the river - Vakili leads this game 1-0.
