Players Remaining:  2 of 78

Jean Gaspard
Jean “Prince” Gaspard

Panzica has had a sizable lead for most of heads-up play, but neither player has been able to build up enough momentum to dramatically change things.

During a round of Stud Hi/Lo, Jean Gaspard and Sam Panzica put in bets on every street, and then Gaspard raised the river. Panzica called.

Gaspard rivered a wheel, with three of the cards hidden, to scoop the pot and narrow Panzica’s lead. (Gaspard would have been in trouble if he had lost this pot.)

Jean Gaspard  –  705,000  (24 BB)
Sam Panzica  –  855,000  (29 BB)

And here are the remaining payouts at stake:

1st:  $23,185 + SHRPO Trophy
2nd:  $15,455
