Armand Muratoglu

Harrison Gimbel started heads up play against Armand Muratoglu with a sizable chip lead and wasted little time in finishing the job to complete his comeback victory in Event 51.

With about 135,000 in the pot, Gimbel checked the K65♣ flop and Muratoglu moved all-in for 765,000. Gimbel spent a minute thinking and then called with Q♠6♠ to put Muratoglu at risk. With just A9, Muratoglu needed to catch up in a hurry but was unable to do so on the K♠ turn and 7♠ river.

The start of Day 2 chip leader earns $27,941 for his run through this event. A winner’s recap will be posted shortly.
