zedmaster84 • Level 35: 70,000-140,000, 17,500 ante
Lakatos eliminated by Tamasauskas

Ben Lakatos was able to climb back to more than 4 million without showdown and then faced the raise to 350,000 by Vincas Tamasauskas, which he called. On the {9-Spades}{4-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} flop, Lakatos opted for a check-raise from 210,000 to 1,365,000 and Tamasauskas came along.

With fewer than the pot behind, Lakatos checked the {a-Spades} turn and Tamasauskas checked back. Lakatos then jammed the {2-Clubs} river for 2,431,831. Tamasauskas quickly called with {k-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{2-Hearts} for deuces over nines, which beat the {a-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{5-Spades}{3-Spades} for a wheel by Lakatos.

Just like that, the short-lived and action-packed heads-up is over and Lakatos finishes as the runner-up for $194,439. Tamasauskas has earned the maiden gold bracelet and top prize of $268,926. A recap of today's action is to follow.
