$1,000+$90 Heads Up NLH
Considering the 30-minute levels in play, it is no surprise that Zhaoxing Wang and Eric Schwartz are still battling in their first match of the Heads Up finale. Schwartz took the early lead in the match but Wang found a double to move back up to 11,000 and remain within striking distance.
The most noteworthy hand of the game to this point came when Schwartz put Wang to the test in Level 2. Schwartz opened for 600 at big blind 300, and Wang three-bet to 1,600. Schwartz did not seem bothered by the raise and four-bet to 4,900. Wang called and the checked the A♦Q♦2♦ flop. Schwartz continued his aggression by moving all-in for about 10,000, barely having Wang covered.
Wang went deep into the tank for about five minutes while thinking about his options. He eventually conceded the hand over to Schwartz but has since inquired a few times about what Schwartz may have had. We probably won’t ever know for sure but as the blinds continue to gradually increase more hands like that one are soon to follow.
