$350 8-Handed Big Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 23: Blinds 8,000/16,000/2,000 ante
It took just two hands to settle the deal, even as they were making a deal during the final hand. Joe Villacci and Carlos Cruz were very close in chips and involved in a big hand.
They decided to chop the money down the middle and the winner of the hand would take the title. There was a flop sitting out there with Villacci all-in after a 100,000 bet from Cruz.
They made their decision and Cruz called with the better against . Villacci joked about having a flush draw and then went runner-runner to make that flush.
Cruz earned $7,775 for his runner-up position while Villacci picked up $7,775 for the win plus the trophy and framed victory photo from IMPDI.
