WSOP Event #29: Duthie trails in $10K Heads-up decider

wsop2009_thn.gifAfter a long, long first match, which Team PokerStars Pro John Duthie came from behind to win, the second was over quickly in favour of Leo Wolpert.

There was not much Duthie could do, after a bout of pre-flop raising they saw an ace-high flop - Duthie had A-K but Wolpert had flopped a set of sixes. All the money went in on the turn and that was that.

The match was levelled then, and they had a decider to claim the WSOP bracelet and the $625,682 first prize. Second still gets $386,636 for his four days work.

In the decider, Wolpert took an early lead, and despite several threats of a Duthie comeback, he still holds a decent lead at the time of writing.

Wolpert: 6,170,000
Duthie: 1,510,000.

But don't write Duthie off. A cool customer when it comes to heads-up play, he'll fight on to the end.
