E-Dog Does the Deed
Justin Bonomo began this match with a slight chip advantage but was worn down by Lindgren's relentless onslaught of aggression. Soon the tables had turned and it was Lindgren enjoying the larger of the two stacks.
More onslaughting and relentlessful play from E-Dog left Bonomo dangerously low going into the final hand.
The Death Blow
Lindgren opened from the button to $80,000 and Bonomo made the call. The flop came down T♣ 5♣ 3♦. Two checks later the turn brought the 4♥.
ZeeJustin fired $80,000 and Lindgren smooth-called. The river was the 8♥ and Bonomo fired again. This time Lindgren opted to raise, setting his opponent all-in. Bonomo made the call and tabled 5♠ 4♠ for the turned two-pair. Lindgren did him one better and laid the A♥ 2♦ down on the felt.
As there were no more cards to come E-Dog's wheel straight was good for the pot, the elimination and the win! Moments after the win Lindgren talked to PL.com about it all right here!
