Blinds: 60,000-120,000 (10,000 ante)

Aaron Gustavson, USA, PokerStars qualifier, winner of EPT London earning £850,000

7.05pm: Peter Eastgate, Denmark, out in second, earning £530,000
Well that didn’t last long. After the huge hand that went to Gustavson moments ago, he has now finished the job. Eastgate got things going, raising pre-flop to 350,000. Gustavson made it 900,000 and Eastgate insta-shoved all in. Gustavson insta-called.

Gustavson had A♠Q♦ and Eastgate had A♥9♦. The board ran out 3♠4♦6♥K♣J♥ and that was enough for Gustavson to wrap this one up.

Peter Eastgate, the Team PokerStars Pro from Denmark, and reigning World Champions missed out by the narrowest margin on his first EPT trophy.

A full wrap is on the way. Stand by.

6.54pm: From the off
First hand back and the action begins immediately. Our heads-up contenders get to a flop of Q♣5♠2♠ and then a turn of K♣. Gustavson check-calls Eastgate’s bet of 725,000 and they go to a 5♥ river. Gustavson checks that too and Eastgate bets 1,135,000. Now Gustavson finds the check-raise and makes it 3,300,000.

Gustavson has check-raised the river against Eastgate once before, and that the river against Eastgate once before, and that time it was a bluff. Eastgate will clearly have remembered that and he takes a good long while to think over the decision. Eventually he folds, losing a significant chunk of his stack, and saying: “Nice bluff.” We will need to watch the TV to find out.

“I’ve chopped off one leg,” Eastgate adds as he is now staring at a huge stack opposite him.

6.50pm: Gustavson v Eastgate
The heads up battle has just started following the dinner break. The chip stacks look like this…

Peter Eastgate — 7,895,000
Aaron Gustavson — 14,045,000
