Czika Comes from Behind
Czika entered Day 2 in the middle of the pack and remained there as he entered the final table fourth in chips. As other players like Yang, Mike Watson, and Noam "lamalo21" Garama battled back and forth for the chip lead, Czika stayed in the hunt through several other eliminations and rode a series of double-ups into contention late in final table action.
The turning point came after Czika folded a large pot to Watson and was left with just a handful of big blinds in four-handed play. Czika bounced back with a small double through Yang before making a better full house in a cooler against Garama to jump back into contention. Czika soon eliminated Garama with a straight and went into three-handed play as the chip leader.
Czika set his sights on the bracelet right away by calling a big bluff from Watson before eliminating him in third place a few hands later with aces and jacks. Heads up play did not last much longer as Czika made a flush to open up a big chip lead on Yang before finally eliminating the second-place finisher with a pair of queens.
