Kenneth Wong managed to gain some ground early in the heads-up battle but that is no longer the case as the last hand of the night has played out within the first 20 minutes of heads-up play.
It all began when Oliver Speidel opened the pot to 160,000 from the button. Wong then three-bet to 485,000 in the big blind. Speidel then threw in a four-bet to 900,000. Wong wanted to make it five bets to go, throwing out 1,900,000. That was a huge portion of Wong's stack and Speidel almost gave a shrug as he said all in. Wong made the call and the two players turned their hands over.
When Wong saw that Speidel had he looked a little taken back as his was well behind. This is when the excitement in the room really kicked into gear. There were shouts for nines from one side of the rail and cheers of joy from the other.
The board ran out with no help for Wong. Don't feel to bad for Wong though, as his 2nd place finish is good for a whopping A$1,000,000.
