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 was looking good, flopped an open-ended straight draw on the board, but now needed to dodge diamonds. The turn completed his straight but the river gave Pacheco the flush along with the Event 1 title.
Monteiro earned $43,630 for his second-place finish while Pacheco took home $62,160 and the second biggest cash of his career.
1st: Hector Pacheco – $62,160 + Trophy
2nd: Vinny Monteiro – $43,630
