John Duthie has had a pretty barren 2011, with the exception of his 11th place finish at the WSOP HU Championship during Vegas this Summer, so this deep run has been a breath of fresh air for the man known as "Mr Big."
Amir Lehavot raised to 35,000 from the hijack seat and Duthie moved his last 147,000 across the line, stood up and put a fag in his mouth. Elio Fox was in the big blind and he made the call before the dealers eyes stared at Lehavot who obviously had a decision. Lehavot decided to isolate and his 1 million raise was sufficient. Fox moved out of the way and Duthie was heads-up versus Lehavot.
So Duthie was in a little bit of pain but it didn't last long - he was dead on the flop!
"At least I could have had a sweat," he says to Barny Boatman on the rail.
The turn and river are irrelevant and Duthies leaves us with 17 players and after one more elimination we will have a slight pay increase to €43,000.
