Event 18 in the World Cup of Cards was a $300 + $30 NL Hold’em tournament organized by the Poker Player Championship Poker Tour. The structure was a 2-day format, and in addition to cash prizes, 20% of the prize pool was awarded as vacation packages to the Aruba World Championship in November.
With 137 registrations, a total of 2 packages were awarded to the top 2 finishers, while the top 15 secured a cash prize. Once play fell heads-up between Max Zeppetelli and Nimer Ltaif, the two players shook on a deal which ended the tournament. Since Max had the 5-to-1 chip lead, the agreement gave him the first place package ($4,500) and cash minus $900, in addition to both Champion’s Trophies, while Nimer took the second place package ($3,473) and cash.
Congratulations, and good luck in Aruba!
