After playing eighteen 40-minute levels yesterday, both Warhurst and Satanan Jungrungreangkit couldn't close out the tournament so came back today for a heads-up clash that lasted less than thirty minutes before the Australian emerged victorious. The Thai player battled hard but will have to settle for second place which still comes with a nice payday of VND 669,220,000 (~$28,280).

When Day 2 began, there was almost nothing separating the two in terms of chips counts with Jungrungreangkit slightly edging it by less than two big blinds. It was Australia's Warhurst who started the stronger and picked up some extra chips after multiple river bets went uncalled which put him into the chip lead. Jungrungreangkit fought back but lost the majority of his stack after he three-bet the flop on the ace-ace-nine board holding king-queen and shoved all in when a jack hit the turn. Warhurst wasted no time in making the call holding ace-six for flopped trips and faded the gutshot straight draw of the Thai player which left him with a little under three big blinds.

It was all over the very next hand when Jungrungreangkit got in the rest of his stack holding ten-deuce and couldn't overcome the jack-seven of Warhurst. The pair shared a handshake after which Warhurst was left to enjoy his victory and a payday of VND 1,003,840,000 (~$42,430).

Satanan Jungrungreangkit has been eliminated in 2nd place for VND 669,220,000 (~$28,280).

After losing that giant hand previously, Jungrungreangkit was all in the very next hand with Julian Warhurst looking to lock up the title right now.

Jungrungreangkit T♦ 2♣ Warhurst J♦ 7♦

Warhurst was in front and just needed to fade the live cards of the Thai player to get his hands on the trophy.

The dealer burned a card and fanned a flop of 3♦ 4♣ 9♥.

So far, so good for the Australian and things got even better on the 8♣ turn as he picked up a gutshot straight draw to remove three of Jungrungreangkit's outs. Only a deuce would keep the player from Thailand alive and he had just one chance to hit it.

The river card...


Warhurst pairs his seven to eliminate Jungrungreangkit from the tournament and win the APT Super High Roller - 8 Max. Jungrungreangkit fought a valiant fight but will have to settle for the runner-up spot and the VND 669,220,000 (~$28,280) prize money.

Warhurst On the Brink of Victory

Julian Warhurst is on the brink of winning the APT Super High Roller as Satanan Jungrungreangkit is left with just 150,000 chips!

The hand starts with Jungrungreangkit making a raise to 150,000 which Warhurst defended from the big blind.

On the 9♠ A♦ A♠ flop Jungrungreangkit led out for 125,000 with Warhurst putting in a raise to 310,000. Jungrungreangkit came back at the Australian with a 3-bet to 800,000 and Warhurst made the call after using some extra time.

The turn brought a J♦ and Jungrungreangkit used two time-chips before shoving all in for around 1,800,000, slightly covering the stack of Warhurst. The Australian checked his cards before dropping in calling chips to create the biggest pot of the tournament.

"Ah you had the ace" remarked Jungrungreangkit.

He sure did and Warhurst was on the brink here of leaving Jungrungreangkit with just 150,000 chips but his work wasn't done just yet. The Thai player did pick up a gutshot straight draw and if he could find a ten on the river, he would be our champion.

It wasn't to be though as the 7♣ completed the runout to earn Warhurst that huge pot and leave Jungrungreangkit crippled.
