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

Smith's Kings Are Good

• Level 10: 2,000-4,000, 0 ante

Justin Smith min-raised to 4,800 from the button and Olivier Busquet made the call. The flop came {2-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{J-Spades} and Busquet led out for 2,500. Smith raised to 7,000 and Busquet called. Both players checked when the {10-Clubs} fell on the turn. Busquet checked once more when the {2-Hearts} came on the river and Smith fired out 18,000 after some deliberation. Busquet called but mucked when Smith revealed {K-}{K-} for an overpair to the board. Smith is back up to around 120,000.
