Heads-Up Starts With a Bang

zedmaster84 • Level 32: 125,000-250,000, 250,000 ante

Derek Lawless raised to 650,000 with the {Q-Clubs}{4-Spades} and James Williams called with the {K-Clubs}{6-Spades}. On the {K-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{3-Clubs} flop, Williams check-called a bet of 800,000 and did so again for 1.2 million on the {Q-Hearts} turn. On the {2-Hearts} river, Williams checked once more and Lawless moved all in for 8 million.

Williams only had 6.1 million behind with his top pair, and used two of his time banks before making the call and finding himself with a massive 9-1 lead.
