Ian Frazer played as solid as anyone could play throughout the fifth heat of the PartyPoker Premier League IV. After a long day of battle that saw the most hands played in any heat so far, Frazer was able to best Luke Schwartz and take home the maximum 16 points for the win.
Countless swings happened when Frazer, Schwartz and Giovanni Safina were thee handed. The short stacked doubled or tripled numerous times and many watching thought the tournament would never end. But after Schwartz finished off Safina in third place, Frazer finished him off in rather easy fashion.
Schwartz couldn't seem to get anything going uring heads-up play and Frazer was on point. He seemed to just know when Schwartz didn't have it or when he did all match long, especially during heads-up play. After his kings held against Schwartz's
, it was all said and done.
