Event #40: $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Early Lead For Smith

• Nivel 1: 2,000-4,000, 0 ante

John Smith, the man who busted Phil Ivey late last night in the last-to-complete match of the previous round, is off to a great start against heads-up specialist Ankush Mandavia.

We just saw a {5-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{10-Hearts} board on the table when Mandavia called Smith's 37,000-chip bet. Smith tabled {J-Spades}{J-Clubs} and Mandavia tapped the table in defeat.
