Event 28’s final table just agreed to an ICM chop.
First, Mitchell Dredge’s stack was blinded out. With 2 tables left, he was not feeling well, and told the tournament director that he had to go lie down somewhere, never to return. That’s very unfortunate, and we hope he gets better soon. We hope to see him well tomorrow when he collects his $1,050 9th place cash prize.
Then Gianfranco Giordano was eliminated in 8th place, taking home $$1,400. We unfortunately missed the details of his elimination, but congratulate him on a nice deep run.
Shortly after, players started to talk about a deal, and when the director came to the table with the ICM numbers, those were quickly agreed on. They left $1,001 up top, along with the Champion’s Trophy.
Daniel Deshaies (featured on the right), the last of the Playground employees, lost his short stack shortly after, finishing in 7th place, and it is to be expected that action will speed up, as this is now a winner-take-all Event.
