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

Guetti Finds an Out

• Level 11: 10,000-20,000, 0 ante

There was about 75,000 in the pot when we walked up to see a {7-Hearts} {J-Spades} {10-Clubs} flop. Richard Lyndaker was likely the preflop three-bettor, and he led out with 32,500 more chips. Anthony Guetti didn't waste much time raising to 87,000, and Lyndaker shoved all in with his covering stack. Guetti quickly made the call for 287,300 with his {K-Spades} {Q-Spades} still drawing, and Lyndaker's {10-Diamonds} {10-Spades} had his opponent in a worse spot that he'd hoped.

The turn {3-Diamonds} was a blank, but the river {9-Diamonds} was just the out Guetti was looking for. A frustrated Lyndaker shot out of his chair and spun around in frustration. He was just one card away from advancing into the Elite Eight, but the open-ender has struck him down. After counting out his debt, his stack has fallen below starting to about 550,000 as Guetti takes a slight lead.
