Event #2: $25,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Straights to the Six For Paredes and Timoshenko

[user197301] • Level 3: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante

We caught the action with board reading {4-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{5-Spades}{2-Spades} and over 75,000 already in the pot. David Paredes bet 87,000 and Yevgeniy Timoshenko made the call. The {Q-Hearts} fell on the river and Paredes continued his aggressive line, pushing his entire stack of 347,500 into the pot. Timoshenko exhaled loudly and fidgeted in his chair before staring intently at his opponent for nearly 5 minutes. After confirming that his last add-on lammer was worth 400,00 chips, Timoshenko decided to make the call. The dramatics proved to be unecessary, however, as Timoshenko showed {Q-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} and Paredes flipped {6-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} for the same straight. The players chopped the massive pot as Paredes playfully told Timoshenko "slow rolling right there."
