Juanda started the heads-up with 4.83 million in chips to Watson's 4.17. Juanda took down the first few pots and increased his lead, but things changed drastically when Watson got a bit lucky a few hands into the match...
Mike Watson betted 240,000 from the button. Juanda reraised to 750,000. Watson decided to move all-in after 2 minutes of thinking. Juanda made the call holding AK. Watson was behind with AJ.
The flop came down 954 and Juanda remained in front. The J was a fantastic card for Watson and it left Juanda with only 3 outs. The river card was the 6 and Watson picked up the pot of 3,850,000. Juanda was left with 1,170,000 chips and looked a bit frustrated.
The very next hand both players ended up all-in again; Mike Watson with KJ against Juanda's K10. The board ran out 3J398, and Juanda was eliminated. Watson claimed the title and the €1 million first place prize!
