The Heads-Up Battle

Guagenti did it after a lengthy back-and-forth battle in which Brodsky was short-stacked most of the time and, at some point, fell to only two big blinds. The last hand happened when Guagenti opened it and put all the short-stacked Brodsky in it. Brodsky called. The board ran 7Q2AQ, and Guagenti’s Q8 won against Brodsky’s 84. Brodsky was out in second place for $80,717.
