When they arrived to heads up play, each player held over 70 big blinds. Given the time, stack sizes, and the fondness the two share for each other they decided on an even chop for $36,800 a piece. They decided to play one last hand for the trophy. Matt turned over 6-5 off. Mark turns over K-7 diamonds. Dealer brings out the Flop 5 5 6, and Matt takes home the trophy.
