After close to two hours of heads up play Stephen Gee has won his first World Series of Poker bracelet and accomplished a goal held by nearly every player of the game.

Gee started the day with 1,540,000 and had a hard time getting much going in the early rounds. At one point he was down to just 975,000 chips before climbing up to a staggering chip lead heading into heads-up play with over 7,000,000 in chips.

Gee and Vance showed starkly different approaches to the game today with Vance playing a lot of big pots and making moves to eliminate opponents early on. Meanwhile Gee exercised a more cautious approach, playing few hands, but making those he did play count for a lot.

Interestingly enough, both Vance and Gee cashed in Event #11 last week. Vance came in 208th, while Gee lasted a little while longer cashing in 201st place. You could say they both lasted a little longer and finished a little closer together this time around.

Matt Vance Eliminated in Second Place ($292,232)

Matthew Vance - Second Place
Matthew Vance - Second Place

Steven Gee raised to 300,000 from the button and Matt Vance shoved for his remaining 1,575,000. Gee asked for a count before making the call.

Vance: {j-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}
Gee: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}

Vance was behind and got no love from the flop as it fell {2-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}. He needed to go runner-runner if he was to pull ahead. When the {7-Spades} came on the turn he was drawing dead with the {8-Spades} on the river acting as a mere formality.

Trading Chips

[user123189]

We haven't been seeing a whole lot of action as Matt Vance and Stephen Gee are mostly just trading chips back and forth.

We got one flop in when Stephen Gee raised to 250,000 on the button and got a call from Matt Vance. Gee followed up with a bet of 250,000 on the {q-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{k-Clubs} flop after Vance checked. The bet was good enough to take it down, and Gee won the pot.

Vance Chipping Away

[user123189]

We haven't been seeing too many flops since the break. In this hand both players limped to a flop of {10-Spades}{6-Spades}{k-Spades}. We didn't see any action on the flop, as they both checked to bring the {8-Spades} on the turn. Once again, it was checked through with the {k-Clubs} coming on the river. Vance decided to throw some money into it, betting 110,000 with Gee making the call.

Vance showed {7-Spades}{2-Spades} and Gee mucked. Vance has won a few hands in heads-up play and how looks to have over 2,000,000 in chips.

Vance Wins First Hand After Break

[user123189]

Matt Vance and Stephen Gee saw an uncontested flop of {4-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}, which they both checked. When the {a-Clubs} came on the turn, Gee checked and vance bet 125,000 with Gee making the call.

The river was the {j-Hearts} and both players checked. Gee showed {k-}{7-} for a pair of kings, while Vance showed {a-}{2-} for a better pair and the pot.
