Jack Duong vs. Vitezslav Pesta for The WSOP gold bracelet
Three days weren't enough in Event 62, a $1,500 Bounty No-Limit Hold'em Tournament, as the heads-up participants return to crown a champion today at 2 p.m. PT. After a grueling 12-hour day, only American Jack Duong (above) and Czech Vitezslav Pesta (below) remain in their quest for World Series of Poker Gold.
Duong will return today with a 15:1 chip lead over his opponent after coming narrowly close to eliminating his opponent in several different hands yesterday. The final table spanned out over a total of 227 hands, with 51 of those played out during heads-up play already. Duong had his chance twice to knock out Pesta. The first time, Duong called with king-nine and was up against Pesta's ace-three. An ace would flop and Pesta would double. The second time it was Pesta's superior kicker on the river that would see him survive once again.
The chips counts for today are Duong (15,380,000) to Pesta (965,000).
