After two runner-up finishes on the World Poker Tour, Nick Petrangelo has finally added his name to the Mike Sexton Champions Cup with victory in the $3,200 6-Max Championship on partypoker. He defeated start-of-day chip leader Artsiom Prostak to win $494,550, after a stunning come-from-behind victory, having started heads-up play at a 3:1 disadvantage against his Belarusian opponent. Petrangelo also wins a seat to the World Poker Tour Tournament of Champions, a Hublot watch and Everyday Baccarat Tumblers.
Heads-up play lasted almost three hours as Petrangelo seemed content to remain as the short-stack. He looked to outplay his opponent, and did so in stunning fashion, shoving with just ten-high to get Prostak to fold a flush.A short while later, Petrangelo moved into the lead heads-up for the first time. The two remained level for a while shortly thereafter, before Petrangelo moved decisively ahead. The final hand saw Prostak call off his lats 15 big blinds having rivered top two pair, but Petrangelo had flopped trips and secured victory.
