We were away for a bit, preoccupied with the action over in the €1,000,000 Big One for One Drop Extravaganza Main Event. When we returned to the €50,000 Heads Up event, it was already over.

Talal Shakerchi had won the first match but Andrew Pantling had gotten back to even winning the second match.

The third match went to Pantling as well. In the last hand the two of them had gotten it in before the flop with Pantling holding {A-Spades}{5-Clubs} up against the {J-}{10-} of Shakerchi.

The board had run out {3-}{4-}{5-}{9-}{Q-} and Pantling earned €95,000 and the One Drop bracelet.
