Larkin' Around

[user4144]

It felt like it was just a matter of time before we had a showdown, as with just one million in chips, Larkin had reached the stage where he was open-shoving the majority of his buttons, and his opponent doing likewise.

In the end, Larkin got his chips in ahead with {A-Hearts}{8-Spades} versus {Q-Spades}{10-Diamonds}, and after a {J-Spades}{6-Spades}{4-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{9-Hearts} board, found himself back over the two million mark.

However, with the blinds having recently increased, Larkin still only has around 20 big blinds and will be looking for opportunities to get his stack in and double up again.

Linn Surges Over Ten Million

thkcduckworth

Michael Linn opened to 200,000 from the button and Taylor Larkin made the call.

The flop fell down {6-Spades}{8-Spades}{6-Clubs} to see Linn's 225,000-chip bet check-called by Larkin as the {9-Spades} landed on the turn.

Both players checked as the dealer burned and turned the {2-Spades} on the river to prompt a check from Larkin before a bet of 300,000 followed from Linn.

Larkin shaked his head in frustration before flicking his cards into the muck to slip to 1,275,000 as Linn soars further ahead to 10,125,000 in chips.

Unbreakable

[user4144]

Although a break is scheduled, the two remaining poker Trojans have opted to play on through.

A Rare Flop

[user4144]

Most hands are going raise, reraise, fold at the moment, but we did see one rare flop where Michael Linn opened to 175,000 and Taylor Larkin called. The community cards were {6-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{10-Spades}, which triggered Larkin into a bet of 225,000, but as soon announced raise, Larkin made the fold. Larkin still fighting but in desperate need of a double through with just 2,000,000.

Returning the Favor

[user4144]

Just a few hands of heads-up played so far. It doesn't look like it'll take too long though (gulp - that might come back to haunt me).

On one hand, Taylor Larkin raised to 175,000 only to fold to a three-bet to 480,000 by Michael Linn. Then, on the very next deal, Larkin returned the favor by reraising Linn's button open of 175,000 to 500,000. Linn made the fold.

Linn Continues To Dominate

Michael Linn is currently dominating this heads up battle at the moment.

Whether it is just a simple preflop raise, or a raise after a Taylor Larkin open, Linn is taking down the majority of pots here at our final table.

Linn Takes Pot From Larkin

thkcduckworth

Michael Linn opened to 175,000 from the button and Taylor Larkin made the call to see a {4-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{5-Spades} flop fall.

Larkin checked and Linn fired out 235,000 only to have Larkin check-raise to 625,000 total. Linn made the call to see the {Q-Diamonds} land on the turn and Larkin check the action over to him.

Linn slid in a small - relative to the pot size - bet of just 250,000 which was enough to prompt a fold from Larkin to see him slip to 2,850,000 as Linn climbs to 8,550,000 in chips.
