Wigg Trimmed, Grows Back

Anton Wigg

On the last hand of the last level, Anton Wigg lost about half his stack to a coin flip, but things have rebounded nicely here for the Swede.

He'd already doubled once to about 125,000 this level, and he just found another chance to get his chips in. It happened in a preflop tangle with Roman Romanovski, and Wigg was the one doing the shoving on a five-bet. It was 122,500 total, and Romanovski made the call with the covering stack.

Wigg: {K-Diamonds} {Q-Hearts}
Romanovski: {A-Hearts} {K-Hearts}

Wigg was in the worst shape, but things would improve in a hurry. The dealer blessed him with a {5-Clubs} {Q-Spades} {K-Spades} flop, and Romanovski was less than thrilled to see the two pair. He could not catch back up on the {10-Diamonds} turn or {4-Diamonds} river, and he's been forced to part with a significant chunk of his stack.

From about 60,000 to start the level, Wigg has worked his count up to about 225,000 now. He and Romanovski have traded facial expressions and stack sizes.
