Andrew Lichtenberger said, “Heads-up is much more interesting than ring play.”

Alex Foxen agreed, and then added, “That must mean you’re bluffing constantly.”

Back to the action, Foxen had built up a lead against Lichtenberger when the following hand took place:

Lichtenberger limped for 50,000, and Alex Foxen checked his option in the big blind.

The flop came AdQc8h, Foxen checked, Lichtenberger bet 50,000, and Foxen called.

The turn card was the 10c, and both players checked.

The river card was the 7s, Foxen bet 100,000, Lichtenberger raised to 400,000, and Foxen quickly called. Lichtenberger showed 8d7d for two pair, eights and sevens, but Foxen turned over 10s8c to win the pot with a higher two pair, tens and eights.

Alex Foxen  –  3,600,000  (72 bb)
Andrew Lichtenberger  –  1,300,000  (26 bb)
