Lunardi Strikes First

Kristian Lunardi has taken the first flop of heads up.

Mike Stecker raised the button to 60,000 and Lunardi called. The flop came {3-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{10-Clubs} and both players checked to the {5-Clubs} turn. On the turn Lunardi bet out 75,000 and Stecker responded by folding.

Heads Up Begins

After a day stretching 14 and a half hours, that has not even averaged two eliminations an hour, we're down to our final two competitors - Christian Lunardi and Mike Stecker.

Heads up play begins now.

Leo Margets Eliminated in 3rd Place ($58,400 AUD)

Leo Margets has just been eliminated in 3rd place.

Margets called all in with {A-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} against Kristian Lunardi's {K-Clubs}{9-Clubs}.

The {3-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} flop put Lunardi in front, and he wouldn't look back. The board completed with the turn {7-Spades} and river {j-Diamonds} to send Margets out of the tournament.

Lunardi and Stecker are relatively even in chips coming into heads up.

Margets Doubles Stecker

Mike Stecker has doubled up with {A-Diamonds}{a-Hearts} against Leo Margets' {A-Spades}{7-Clubs}.

The board ran out {3-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{9-Clubs} to double through Stecker.

Stecker now has 1,122,000 in chips. Margets has 445,000.

Mel Judah - You Were Wrong

Well actually he was definitely more right than we were thinking. But it's after the 4am that he predicted and we're still three handed. It's getting towards the stage where we're thinking that this could go through to the 2011 Aussie Millions.

Margets Moving On Lunardi

Leo Margets is seemingly moving on Kristian Lunardi. Margets got the best of two recent exchanges between the pair.

In the first Margets opened to 60,000 and Lunardi came over the top for 135,000. Margets shoved and Lunardi folded.

The next time they clashed Lunardi opened to 50,000 and Margets pushed over the top. Once again Lunardi folded pretty quickly.

Margets is up to 1,000,000 in chips. Lunardi is down to about 900,000.
