$25,500 High Roller NLH (Re-Entry) $1,000,000 Guaranteed | Structure | Payouts Level 18: 15,000/30,000 with a 30,000 ante
The heads-up match between a WPT Champion (Jonathan Jaffe) and WSOP bracelet winner (Arkadiy Tsinis) played out for a few hands before the two decided to look at numbers for dividing up the remaining prize pool.
It was a quick negotiation and the numbers were adjust based on the counts at the time.

Jared Jaffee dropped chips after the break and made a move to double. He shoved for 360,000 from the button, Jonathan Jaffe folded his small blind but Arkadiy Tsinis quickly called in the big.
It was a race, Jaffee could not pair on the flop but he picked up a ton of outs with the open-ended straight draw/flush draw. Tsinis made a set on the turn and Jaffee missed all 13 of his outs on the river to exit in third place.
Arkadiy Tsinis – 1,115,000 (37 bb) Jared Jaffee – Eliminated in 3rd Place ($146,842)
$2,200 Deep Stack PLO (Re-Entry) Structure Level 1: 100/100

Late registration and unlimited re-entry are available until the start of Level 7 at 9:30pm and they will continue through Level 12.
