Event #2: $25,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Froehlich Bests Antonius

• Level 8: 1,200-2,400, 0 ante
Patrik Antonius - out

With the blinds at 1,200/2,400, Eric Froehlich made it 4,800 from the button. Antonius made the call.

The flop fell {2-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}. Antonius checked to Froehlich who fired out a bet of 5,600. Antonius called and the turn brought the {A-Diamonds}. Antonius bet 13,000 and Froehlich responded by announcing his all in. Antonius went into the tank before eventually dropping his last 40,200 into the middle and tabling {A-Spades}{6-Hearts}.

It was bad news for Antonius when he learned he was behind the {Q-Hearts}{10-Spades} of Froehlich. The river bricked out for Antonius with the {7-Spades}, leaving Froehlich to claim first round victory.
