Andrew Mullen came into heads up play against Kevin Grabel at a serious disadvantage as Grabel held a 3-1 edge in chips. The battle didn’t last long as Grabel won one of the first hands of the match with a well-timed river shove to take down the SugarRush Challenge title.
Grabel opened from the button and Mullen called to see a J♥10♥3♦ flop. Mullen checked and Grabel bet 350,000 which Mullen called. Mullen checked again on the Q♥ turn and Grabel bet 700,000 this time. Mullen called once more and the 5♠ hit the river.
Mullen checked for the third time and Grabel shoved all-in, putting Mullen at risk for his last 3,000,000. Mullen thought for a moment but called and didn’t like seeing Grabel turn over 3♥2♥ for a flush. Mullen mucked and Grabel will be the champion of the SugarRush Challenge. For Mullen, he will earn a $19,667 consolation prize, good for the largest score of his tournament career. A winner’s recap will be posted shortly.
