Ben Sulsky Wins Marathon Match, Ousts Phil Galfond

Ben Sulsky is Our Last Entrant Into the Elite Eight

In the last match of this round, Ben Sulsky has just defeated Phil Galfond after more than two and a half hours of grueling head-up play.

The final hand occurred when Sulsky responded to Galfond's limp with an overbet to 425,000, effectively putting Galfond all-in if he decided to call.

"This is close..." Galfond said, before ultimately saying "Yep, let's go."

Galfond tabled the {Q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}, and he would need help to overcome Sulsky's {K-Clubs}{7-Hearts}. No such help arrived on the {A-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{2-Spades}{4-Clubs}{2-Clubs} board, however, and Galfond was sent to the payout desk, while Sulsky will return shortly for his Elite Eight matchup against Randy Lew.
