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

Duthie's Overflush Takes the Pot

• Level 1: 600-1,200, 0 ante

After both players limped in, the flop brought the {5-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{9-Clubs} and Carlos Mortenson fired a bet of 3,500, which Duthie called. The {Q-Hearts} on the turn was an all-purpose card, completing straight and flush possibilities, so both players checked. An {8-Hearts} on the river inspired Carolos to roll two 5,000 chips into the pot, and Duthie paused for a few seconds before shrugging and making the call. Mortenson showed the {7-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} for a nine-high flush, but Duthie's {Q-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} was one better and he took the pot.
