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 10♥8♦4♣ 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 Q♥10♠6♠2♠ and Zaporozhets was drawing almost dead with J♣J♥10♣9♣. The 4♥ turn sealed it and Rist wins Event 29.
