The 48th Event at the 2010 World Series Of Poker was the $2,500 Mixed Game scheduled for the 26th June, 2010. Eight different games were played that began at 3:00 p.m. with 20 players at 3 tables. The game ended 14 hours later with Sigurd Eskeland emerging as the champion.


As the match got under way with the final two, Steve Sung & Sigurd Eskeland, Eskeland made a bet & the first three cards were dealt with by Sung. He had a Qc 9h 9d. Sung then declined to make a bet leading Eskeland to make a turn of his card which was the Kc, thus calling the current bet of zero by both the players. The final card was dealt with in the current poker hand, a 10c and Eskeland discarded his hand to a bet from Sung. Then Sung made a razz hand, which got him 1,200,000 however, Eskeland was still up ahead of him with 2,600,000.


A few minutes later Sung again made a razz hand with Eskeland having to make a forced bet in the stud game & requiring Sung to raise the amount of the bet to a normal-sized bet. There was the fourth street by Sung with Eskeland matching the bet. Eskeland bet on the fifth street & asked Sung to match the raise. Eskeland folded on sixth street when Eskeland checked and Sung bet. With this both players levelled against each other.


Next came in the stud, with Jh As 6s Ad of Eskeland & Qh Ah 5d 3d of Sung, putting Eskeland back in the lead. He opened the betting round and then called a completion from Sung on third street. When Sung bet nothing on the turn card, Eskeland bet and Sung matched with him. Sung check-raised on fifth street allowing Eskeland to call. On sixth street it was Eskeland who bet with Sung calling. Eskeland began a final round of betting & got Sung to fold.


The next hand showed Eskeland- 6d 2c 4h 10c, & Sung- 3s 10s 5s 3d. Sung opened the betting round but three-bet Eskeland after Eskeland increased the size of his bet. Fourth street was pretty simple with Sung betting and Eskeland matching the bet & it was the same till seventh street when Sung bet and Eskeland forfeited his interest in the current pot. Thereby, Sung was up by 200K, he had 1,800,000 to Eskeland's 1,600,000.††


After this there was a flop of 10h 9s 3h. Sung check-called a bet of 640,000 from Eskeland and they both passed the 4d on fourth street. The river card was 5h, Sung bet out 200,000, and got Eskeland to fold.


Eskeland rose to 80,000 from the buck and got a situation of a three-bet to 260,000 from Sung. The cards were as such, Sung- Qd Qs & Eskeland- Ac 9s. The flop came 3d 9c 4c but it didnít prove to be of much help to Sung. However, the Jc on the turn gave Eskeland a chance to draw for his flush in addition to his higher card. The final card was the 2c, giving Eskeland all the cards of the same suit as well as his victory, with which the event ended.


Steve Sung had won a bracelet last year in a $1000 event but could only gather a $160,952 & a 2nd place this year. Whereas, Sigurd Eskeland, from Oslo, Norway had previously cashed in two WSOP events, including the main event in 2008 but went all the way to win $260,497 & the coveted bracelet in this WSOP.
