ANZPT Sydney: Walsh v Arzoomanian for the title

We're down to the final two in the PokerStars.net ANZPT Sydney Main Event, with Lisa Walsh narrowly trailing Paren Arzoomanian for the title.

Chris Kittos busted in fourth spot after he came out on the wrong end of a race against Walsh. It was 3♣ 3♥ against A♥ K♠ for Kittos, with the board of 2♣ 4♣ 5♦ 5♠ J♠ ending his tournament.

The heads-up line-up was decided when Walsh used a big slick of her own - A♣ K♥ - against the A♦ 8♣ of John Caridad. The board of [10h] 2♦ 3♣ 7♥ J♦ missed both players, and Caridad, the final PokerStars qualifier in the tournament, was out in third.

Paren Arzoomanian: the people's favourite

That left Walsh on 4.1 million and Puzz holding 5.6 million as the heads-up battle started. Walsh remains on track to capture the biggest tournament prize ever won by a female on Australian soil, and the biggest tournament prize ever captured by an Australian female anywhere in the world. And then there's Puzz, with a bunch of railbirds who've yet to sleep in the past 40 hours, fuelled by enough vodka Red Bulls to power a lunar mission. Should be fun!
