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

Cody On Right Side of Cooler, Advances to Semifinals

[user197301] • Level 7: 12,000-24,000, 0 ante
Jake Cody on to Semifinals

After a small raise by Jake Cody, Anthony Guetti three-bet to 105,000 and Cody declared himself all-in. Guetti quickly made the call and flipped up {7-Hearts}{7-Spades}, but found himself trailing the {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} held by the British phenom.

The two players stood as Cody's supporters let loose with a loud cheer. The flop came {J-Clubs}{K-Spades}{9-Spades} and Guetti found himself needing to hit a two-outer to survive. No help came as the turn produced the {3-Clubs}, and when the dealer peeled the {6-Spades} Cody's British contingent began whooping it up, patting their man on the back in congratulation. Cody will play Gus Hansen in the semifinal round of the $25k Heads-Up World Championship, pitting two players who have captured gold and glory in European events, but have yet to win a bracelet in the Las Vegas edition of the WSOP.
