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

Jake Flops an Ace and Takes the Chip Lead

• Level 8: 30,000-60,000, 0 ante

Timoshenko made a min-raise to 60,000 and Cody called to bring a flop of {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{5-Hearts}. Both players checked and the {Q-Diamonds} arrived on the turn.

Cody led out this time for 70,000 chips and Timoshenko stared straight ahead as he thought things through. The Ukrainian elected to reraise to 220,000 and now it was Cody's turn to reflect.

The Brit made the call and after the {J-Hearts} fell on the river both players checked it down. Cody showed down the {A-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} and Timoshenko mucked, sending a large pot in Cody's direction. This hand propelled Cody into a slight chip lead after he had fallen behind early.
