Event 12: $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em

One Match Remains

[user139916] • Taso 58: 5,000-10,000, 0 ante

Eevert Kokkonen vs. Max Steinberg is the last match going in the round of 32 and Kokkonen just doubled up to take a solid lead.

He opened to 20,000 on the button and Steinberg defended his big blind to see a {J-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{2-Spades} flop. A check from Steinberg led to a bet of 25,000 from Kokkonen. That was met with a min-raise from Steinberg to 50,000, but Kokkonen came back over the top to 81,000. Steinberg jammed with the bigger stack, Kokkonen called, and the hands were revealed.

Kokkonen: {J-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}
Steinberg: {K-Hearts}{6-Spades}

Kokkonen was ahead with top pair and maintained it through the {q-Hearts} turn and {4-Spades} river to double up and take about a 380,000 to 100,000 lead.
