Event #20: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Loosli, Mizzi Advance

[user196676] • Level 11: 800-1,600, 200 ante

After a hefty heads up match, November Niner Sylvain Loosli has advanced to Day 2. On the final hand, Loosli opened to 3,600 on the button and his opponent three-bet shoved all in for 25,800 from the big blind. Loosli called and the hands were turned on their backs.

Loosli: {A-Hearts}{8-Hearts}
Opponent: {Q-Clubs}{j-Hearts}

The board came down in dramatic fashion {2-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{J-Clubs}{2-Spades}, giving Loosli's opponent the lead on the turn, but putting a pair of deuces on the board on the river to give Loosli the win. He'll return tomorrow with a stack of 80,000.

Immediately afterward, Marcus Mizzi won his heads up match and bagged up 80,600. Now just one match remains before Day 1 comes to an end.
