PartyPoker’s Premier League continued to hand out points and prizes to some of the game’s best players yesterday as the second heats came to a conclusion.
After Jonathan Duhamel and Tobias Reinkemeier both won their respective heats, it was time for two new victors to emerge. After underperforming in Heat 1, Group A’s Daniel Cates dominated the second match and overcome the previous winner, Duhamel.Throughout the heat it looked as though Duhamel would cruise to another first place finish and 16 points, however, after Cates dispatched Daniel Negreanu in third place, it was the American who stood firm. Indeed, after finding pocket aces just eight hands into their battle, Cates’ actions managed to induce and ill-timed bluff from Duhamel. Having moved all-in with K-8 on a queen high board, Duhamel was unable to recover and had to settle for second place and 11 tournament points. In Group B’s second heat it was Dan Shak who continued to prove that he’s not just a wealthy amateur. Indeed, in much the same way that Duhamel came close to a second victory, so did Tobias Reinkemeier. The German pro almost scored another 16 points after getting the better of the early heads-up exchanges with Shak. However, after taking a minute to compose himself the American managed to regain the lead before calling Reinkemeier’s desperate all-in with Kc 4h. Holding the advantage of his opponent’s Jh 7d, Shak was able to stay in front as the board developed and clinch the match.
