Sergey Zaprorozhets

Heads up play between Sergey Zaporozhets and Scott Rist swung back and forth due to the high limits. Rist caught a Zaporozhets bluff and then finished him off a few hands later to win the title.

Rist raised and Zaporozhets three-bet. Rist called and fielded bets on the 1084♣ flop, K♠ turn;, and 9♠ river. Rist’s K♥Q♥6♥2♠ was good after Zaporozhets mucked.

The final hand featured Zaporozhets getting his last bet in the middle on a 8♠5♠2♠ flop. Rist had a flush Q10♠6♠2♠ and Zaporozhets was drawing almost dead with J♣J10♣9♣. The 4 turn sealed it and Rist wins Event 29.
