Prior to counting their stacks, Scott Seiver offered to do a chip chop plus five percent. He told David Sands that believes he has an edge heads up, to which Sands said, "Maybe if we were 800 big blinds deep."
"Well yeah," Seiver answered. "I would have a huge then."
Seiver believes that he has a ten-percent edge, and his five-percent offer is half of what he expects.
Sands didn't think the deal was realistic, and went to talk with Tom Marchese.
"I'm just gonna to f***in' play 'em," Sands said.
The two have agreed to disagree, and will continue without making a deal.
There was then a break so that the television crew could re-adjust, prompting Sands to blurt, "They know we're playing a tournament and not just making a TV show, right?"
