It took over 13 hours but when the chips had finished flying Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky finally emerged as the winner from his All-Star Showdown semi-final match with Isaac Haxton.

The blinds started at $50/$100 but, after a thousands of hands and very little between them, the antes eventually escalated to $100/$200 then $200/$400.

The added juice soon put the pressure on both players and after taking down Isaac on three tables, Ben managed to scoop the remainder of his opponent's chips after a total of 4,207 hands.

Having dispatched with yet another tough opponent Ben can now take some time to rest while Phil Galfond and Daniel Cates battle today for the last place in the finale.

Daniel Junglemandan Cates proved w hy he's one of the best online players in the world yesterday with a decisive win over one of the year's biggest winners Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky.

The pair met in PokerStars' All-Star Showdown finale and, after a tight start, Cates eventually asserted his dominance; albeit with a helping hand from lady luck at one point.

With so little to choose between them on paper the match was always going to be tight and that proved the case after the first two hours.

By hour three, however, Cates caught a break and after rivering a flush in a pot worth $93,600.

He then went on to to scoop another pot worth $200,000 with 9h5d.
After bets and raises on every street, the pair finally got their stacks in on a 2c5s9c5c7c board. In the split-second before the cards were revealed Sulsky must have been confident with his pocket deuces, however, after Cates' hand was flipped over and the $200,000 pot was shipped in the opposite direction he realised how unlucky he’d been.

The momentum was now firmly behind Cates and, despite Sulsky maintaining his composure and mounting a series of fight backs, he eventually closed out the match after 3,179 hands.

The win netted him $550,000 as well as the title: All-Star Showdown Champion.

Cates really deserves that title, i really think the only player that is better heads up on NLHE are Viktor Blom and probably Scott Palmer...

I hope to see more of Cates once full tilt will allow real money games on it's tables Smile
