Total Entries: 594
Players Remaining: 2
Heads up between Jose Cayetano and Frank Marasco begin with Jose holding an 11,400,000 to 3,900,000 advantage.
Over the end of 32 and the very beginning of 33, Frank was able to close the gap to nearly even.
However, a key pot happened when, falling behind again, Frank was forced to fold to a 2 million river bet in position after he surrendered the betting lead to Jose. Frank took a lot of time, thinking for over three minutes before folding on 4c] – an “interesting” hand as, Frank himself said.
Next, disaster. Frank calls a min check raise then snap folds the turn. Another significant pot to Cayetano, and there are back to the original ratios.
Hanging on with 2.7 million, the two joked about Jose’s big move with that changed the final table.
Marasco managed to double barrel a flush card against Jose, using the exact same sizing he had against Rivkin.
Howver, he then paid off a great value bet from Cayetano, 500,000 for second pair no kicker, putting pressure on his now 15 bbs.
Merely timely or not, Cayetano then found a three bet pre from the big, further eroding Frank to 2.1 of the 15,000,000 chips.
A few hands later, after exchanging preflop pressure from Cayetano, Frank is at 2 million.
With ten blinds, he now goes with , while Cayetano, always thinking his decisions through, paused before calling off with . As he had done for most of the final table, his patience was rewarded – he hit top pair, and the tournament was his.
