So it has all come down to this – Ruben Perceval and Jaered Best playing heads up for the win!
Their paths to this point today were strikingly different – Ruben taking and keeping the lead while Jaered stayed very quiet and sought at first to ladder up and then to find opportunities to gain chips and maybe bink a spot in the standings.
As soo n as play got down to 2 players, Ruben opened up the question of a deal. The clock was paused and stack sizes determined, and eventually the players agreed to a modified ICM chop that sees $10,000 and the Champion’s Trophy reserved for the winner and locks in $77,500.00 for Ruben and $69,070.00 for Jaered.
Heads up play has now begun.
