Not much is separating Joey Weissman and Kurt Lichtman from Super Knockout Bounty other than the player sitting across from them. Weissman started the heads up match with markedly more chips than Lichtman but that gap is now smaller thanks to a timely river card for Lichtman.
Lichtman got his last 850,000 in the middle with Q♦9♠ and was flipping versus the 8♣8♠ of Weissman. The K♦9♦9♣ flop was about as helpful as Lichtman could ask for as he gained counterfeit outs and a straight draw. The 3♥ turn put Weissman one card from victory but the Q♠ river put Lichtman in front to gain the double.
The match between the two is now fairly close as Lichtman is up to 1,700,000 with Weissman a few blinds ahead at 2,000,000.
