Juan Pardo had battled it back to even stacks after winning a few pots against Barry Hutter but Hutter still had a narrow chip lead as Pardo held 50,298,732 to the 50,701,268 of Hutter.
In the hand that followed in The High Roller Big Game, Pardo limped in on the button and Hutter raised to 4,920,000 which Pardo called.
The flop came down , and Hutter continued with a bet of 3,180,000. Pardo took some time and then raised it up to 9,000,000. Hutter contemplated for a bit and then decided to reraise to 16,200,000. Pardo tanked and then almost shoved for 45,228,730, keeping 2 chips behind. Hitter really shoved with the slightly bigger stack for Pardo to make the call instantly.
Pardo had flopped to pair while Hutter was sitting on the overpair and backdoor nut-flush draw.
The turn was the for Hutter to pick up the heart towards the nut-flush and some more outs for the higher two pair which got there when the came on the river to counterfeit Pardo's two pair to win the tournament for $60,537.

Pot Limit Omaha players are often overlooked when it comes to tournament poker. Not at partypoker where the PLO players have some incredible tournaments to get their teeth into: the PLO Daily Legends.
partypoker's Daily Legends tournaments have proven immensely popular for several reasons. They have reduced a late registration period and limited re-entries (usually just a single re-entry) which levels the playing field. They finish at a reasonable hour, too, without compromising the average stack size. They are genius really.
PLO Daily Legends follow in the same vein except they are all Omaha tournaments instead of hold'em. Buy-ins range from the $2.20 Forge and increase to the $55 Chieftain.
Barry Hutter and Juan Pardo are still battling heads-up with Pardo claiming some chips since things started and are now on a break in The High Roller Big Game with $60,537 on the line.
They'll continue with Level 29 which features a small blind of 500,000, a big blind of 1,000,000 and an ante of 125,000.
Barry Hutter and Juan Pardo are heads-up in The High Roller Big Game with Hutter holding a big chip lead with 80,152,134 to the 20,847,866 of Pardo.
Online poker sites invest countless hours and dollars into creating the perfect mobile app for their customers, partypoker included.
