Tyler Patterson got his last 2,200,000 in against Brett Murray on the first hand of heads up in a race.

Tyler Patterson: {a-Spades}{q-Diamonds}
Brett Murray: {9-Spades}{9-Hearts}

The flop came {8-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{6-Clubs}, solidifying Murray's lead.

"Please, can I just win this on the first hand like Jarod," asked Murray referring to his friend Jarod Minghini, who won the recent WSOP Circuit event on the first hand of heads up.

The {j-Hearts} came on the turn, leaving Murray one card away from the win.

"Barry Greenstein!" called Patterson, wishing for an ace on the river, referring to the title of Greenstein's classic book.

Sure enough, the {a-Clubs} fell on the river, giving Patterson and instant double up to start heads up play.
