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

Ace on the Turn Gives Yev a Massive Chip Lead

[user197301] • Level 7: 20,000-40,000, 0 ante

Timoshenko open-shoved from the button and was quickly called by Froehlich, who put his last 409,000 at risk. E-Fro showed down the {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts} and was off to the races against Timoshenko's {A-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}.

The dealer revealed a flop of {4-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{2-Hearts} and Froehlich's hand was safe for the time being. The {A-Spades} on the turn was a dagger to the heart of the American, however, and he needed to spike a two-outer to win the hand.

E-Fro's cheering section began calling for an eight on the river but the dealer turned over the {10-Hearts}, giving the pot to Timoshenko and forcing Froehlich cash in his last remaining 800,000 bullet.
