The first heads-up hand saw Luis Calvo apply a big pressure on Rudolph Sawa.
Calvo min-raised from the button, and Sawa called to see the land on the flop. Sawa checked, and Calvo continued for 200,000. He received a quick call.
The turn brought another check from Sawa, and Calvo pulled out a second barrel, sliding in 350,000. Sawa seemed calm, calling fast again.
Sawa checked one more time on the river, but Calvo remained attacking. He asked for the pot size, getting 1,420,000. Then he announced he was betting 750,000. Sawa acted quickly again, but he didn't press the call button this time, sending his cards to the muck.
With the first hand going his way, Calvo increased his lead to exact two-to-one advantage.
