With the elimination of Brazil’s Pedro ‘mrsweets29’ Madeira, heads-up got underway between Christopher ‘RambaZamba’ Putz and Leonardo ‘Babaehduro’ Mattos.
Putz shoved from the button for 10 million and was called by Mattos with the bigger stack.
The board and Mattos with the higher kicker won the tournament for a life-changing $399,047 while Putz collected $298,296 for his second-place finish.
