The flop 9h 3d 2c
The turn 6s
The river 8s
Duhamel doubles to become massive chip leader and Cheong is gone a few hands later.
Monday at 11pm Eastern heads up play will resume with these chip totals
Unlike this part of the final table which took 15 hours, the heads up match should be short with Racener having less than 15 Big Blinds to play with.
There were two astounding eliminations at this final table and one massive blow up by the player that outplayed everybody all day.
He wasn't the only one, Grinder made some really poor decisions as well.
Probably the best final table ever, based on level of play and excitement. This is the most poker I've ever watched in one day, and I'm glad I didn't miss a moment of action since play started at 3:30 pm eastern time Saturday. The ESPN3 live broadcast is the greatest, who needs to see hole cards to be entertained?
