Heads-up play in this event was between Sigurd Eskeland and Steve Sung. At the start of heads-up play, Eskeland led 2.263 Million to the 1.134 Million of Sung. Sung battled back and held the chip lead briefly going into the NL Holdem round. Eskeland had regained the lead when the largest pot of the match went down to end the event. A raising war went down pre-flop resulting in Eskeland moving all-in with Ac-9s. Sung insta-called with pocket queens.
The flop fell 3d-9c-4c to give Eskeland a pair and outs to a running flush. The turn Jc made the flush a realistic possibility. Sung has to avoid an ace, nine, or club to double up and cripple Eskeland. The river fell the 2c to give Eskeland the unlikely flush and the bracelet.
Sigurd Eskeland is the Event #48 champion. This former teacher went from being famous for ass crack in 2008 to cracking queens for bracelets in 2010. In addition to his first WSOP bracelet, he took home $260,497.
