Eric Wasylenko had a reasonable advantage over Oscar Carrasco at the start of their heads up match but his edge is that much large after taking down a pot with trips.

Picking up the action on a board of 9♣7♣4J, Carrasco checked and Wasylenko bet 1,100,000. Carrasco called and Wasylenko bet 2,300,000 on the 9♠ river. Carrasco called and Wasylenko showed 9♦5♥ for trips. Carrasco said he had two pair and Wasylenko took in the pot.

Carrasco is up against it now with 3,500,000 behind.
