Sometimes, three outs are all you need. That was enough for Nikolaus Teichert, who just jammed when he was dominated but spiked a deuce on the river to make two pair and eliminate Vincent Maglio after just 26 hands of heads-up play here on Day 4.
The pair began heads-up play last night, but were unable to conclude the tournament, and play was suspended until today. Teichert, who had taken momentum and a chip lead late last night, continued his surge from the start of Day 4 and never let Maglio get anything going.
Teichert, who sports a modest $211,772 in live cashes, more than tripled that with his $730,756 win today. Of course, he also claimed a World Series of Poker gold bracelet for his victory.
