"Final table host Tyler "frosty012" Frost presented both ICM and chip count chop figures to the final three. While "kabukiboy" and TheManM were keen on an ICM deal, "ZAR84" wanted to walk away with at least $130,000 locked up. Kabukiboy agreed to turn over $2,000 from his ICM share and TheManM offered up $452.08, leaving himself with an even $106,000. His total close to $129,000, ZAR84 opted to close the deal and both kabukiboy and TheManM agreed to the revised terms. With $20,000 still left to play for, cards went back in the air."
