Hector Pacheco

Before the heads-up match began, Hector Pacheco and Vinny Monteiro briefly discussed a deal to divide up the remaining prize pool but decided to play it out.

Seat 2: Vinny Monteiro – 8,575,000 (86 bb)
Seat 8: Hector Pacheco – 24,475,000 (245 bb)

The match lasted one hand, Monteiro had his chips in the middle trying to double into a tie while Pacheco was trying to win it.

Monteiro: Qh9s
Pacheco: Qd4d

Monteiro earned $43,630 for his second-place finish while Pacheco took home $62,160 and the second biggest cash of his career.
