It’s the final table of the 2017 Macau Billionaire Poker Spring Challenge, and we're down to 2 players.

The hero in this hand is Tom ‘Durrrr’ Dwan, who reached the final table after being released/escaping from the nightmarish dungeon in which he resides. Now, he is heads up for $420,000 against Nikita "fish2013" Bodyakovsky, a well-respected online pro.

Tom holds a slight chip lead going into this hand.
