After about a dozen hands of heads-up play, Yen Dang still enjoyed the chip advantage with which she began when she opened with a raise to 75,000 from the button. Debbie Pechac then reraised to 200,000, and Dang called.

The flop came {K-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} and after just a few seconds Pechac announced she was all in. Dang took a look across the table, then said she was calling.

Pechac: {J-Hearts}{10-Clubs}
Dang: {Q-Spades}{7-Spades}

Dang had a pair of queens, while Pechac was hoping to fill an open-ended straight draw. The turn was the {4-Hearts}, no good to Pechac. Her supporters rose, calling for either an ace or nine, but the river brought the {J-Spades}.

The chips were counted down just to make sure, but Dang indeed had Pechac covered, thus putting an end to another great ladies event run for Pechac. After finishing 21st and 14th in this event before, Pechac made it all of the way to second this year and a six-figure score.
