No matter how bad either Michael Hager or Joe Palma want their heads up match to be over, the deck will not cooperate and it’s now Palma’s turn to stay alive.
Palma moved all-in for 6,050,000 from the button and Hager called in the big blind. Hager was ahead with A♣4♠ and Palma was plenty live with Q♦J♦. The A♦10♥9♠ flop paired Hager and gave Palma outs to a straight.
The 8♥ turn hit Palma’s straight and Hager let out a well-earned expletive. The two players are now near even in chips as heads up play wears on.
