Mike Watson Eliminated in 2nd Place (AUD$529,200)

Mateusz_Pater • Level 14: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante
Mike Watson

The action started with Mike Watson raising to 30,000 from the button and finding a call from Nick Petrangelo in the big blind.

The flop fell {8-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} and both players opted to check.

The turn brought the {7-Diamonds} and Petrangelo led out for 45,000. Watson called.

The {j-Diamonds} completed the board and Petrangelo splashed out 150,000. Watson waited until his time bank almost counted down to zero before announcing all in for 562,000.

Petrangelo waited until the tournament director cut out Watson's stack and gave him an exact count before making the call shortly after.

Just like that the heads-up battle was complete. Watson reluctantly turned over {a-Spades}{4-Clubs} for ace-high before Petrangelo flipped over {j-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} for two-pair and the winning hand.
