Erick Lindgren Wins Event No. 4 ($374,505)

Erick LindgrenAfter the first no-limit portion of the heads-up match between Erick Lindgren and Justin Bonomo ended without too much chip movement, the game switched back to limit hold'em. This was when Lindgren changed gears and poured on the aggression. He rattled off five pots in a row at one point to take a massive chip lead and leave Bonomo in a perilous position.

Bonomo was on a short stack when Lindgren raised to 80,000 preflop and he made the call. The flop rolled out 1053 and both players checked. The turn fell 4 and Bonomo bet 80,000. Lindgren made the call and the river hit the table 8. Bonomo bet 80,000 and Lindgren raised to 160,000. Bonomo called all in and they turned up their hands to decide the bracelet. Bonomo held 54 for two pair but Lindgren turned over A2 for a turned straight to win his first gold bracelet. Lindgren will also take home $374,505 in prize money, while Bonomo was awarded $230,159 for second place.

Threeway Merry-go-Round
 
During the first 20 hands of the heads-up match chips have been traded amongst the players without any huge pots of consequence. Players took turns showing their aggression and no player had really gained or lost too much, although Andrew Robl was stuck on a short stack since the beginning of threehanded action. He will most likely make a move soon.
