Ugotmeyet? And ansuz were the last two standing after 10 rounds of the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) Event #10, a $530 heads-up tournament, but they faced one last match before one would be crowned the top finisher out of nearly 1,900 entrants. The players made a final table deal that left $17K for the winner, along with the coveted WCOOP bracelet, and settled in for one final match. Both players were guaranteed $65,054 as a result of the deal.
In a back and forth heads up match, ugotmeyet? took an early lead, running over the first twenty hands or so without a showdown. But it only took one hand for ansuz to jump back to even, going to the river with trip Queens and bringing the contest back to competitive. Ugotmeyet? was forced to spend the next twenty hands rebuilding his lead, only to watch it evaporate on an ansuz all-in move on a board of K-Q-5. Players went to the first break even in chips.
Ansuz came back from the break with newfound aggression, jamming pots and building a quick 2-1 chip lead, before ugotmeyet? had his pocket Queens hold up against ansuz's flush draw. On a flop of , ugotmeyet? led out, and called ansuz's all in raise. Ansuz held , but ugotmeyet?'s Q-Q held up to give him a slight chip lead.
Ansuz didn't let the lead last long, retaking the lead with a massive 5-1 chip advantage after he flopped two pair with Q-10 against ugotmeyet's 10-9 for middle pair. Ansuz failed to deliver the coup de grace when ugotmeyet? rivered an Ace to stay alive a few hands later. Ugotmeyet? slowly pulled back to even over the next ten minutes, and players were right back where they started from, looking for a single mistake to hang their bracelet hopes on.
After a few minutes of sparring, ugotmeyet? re-took the lead by catching a Queen-high flush on the turn, which spurred him on to building a 2-1 chip lead. Then, as is so often the case in heads-up matches, one big hand decided the event. Ansuz held Q-Q versus ugotmeyet?'s A-J in the final hand, and just when it looked like ansuz would pull back to even, an Ace landed on the flop, giving ugotmeyet? the match and the WCOOP bracelet.
