Event #15: $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Petkov Doubles then Eliminates Elias

• Level 10: 1,500-3,000, 0 ante

Darren Elias shipped all in on the button and Lachezar Petkov called from the big blind. Elias tabled {q-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} which was trailing Petkov's {a-Clubs}{3-Spades}. The board ran out {j-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{2-Clubs} and Petkov doubled up for 37,800 to take the lead.

A few hands later, Petkov raised to 6,000 on the button and Elias moved all in for around 45,000. Petkov quickly called and was in another dominating position. Petkov showed {a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} against the {a-Diamonds}{6-Spades} of Elias.

The flop of {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} brought some chop outs for Elias and the {7-Clubs} on the turn gave him a straight draw. The {j-Diamonds} on the river would miss everything and Petkov held on for the win.
