Event #2: $25,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Sorted Out, More or Less

[user66118] • Level 11: 10,000-20,000, 0 ante

Steve Frezer came back from viewing the tapes, and he told the two player what he saw. As it turns out, it was a dealer error that occurred (long story short) because Billirakis sat out for a minute or so. Both men were given their 200,000 in green chips, but Billirakis' stack was broken in half and divided again for some reason. So Billirakis got quartered, basically.

The staff took the 100,000 chips back from Marafioti's stack and put it in Billirakis', but things still weren't right. On the one hand they played, Billirakis' stole the blind for 8,000, but he only had 403,000 chips in his stack after the recount. That error was corrected as well, and it's now officially 408,000 to 792,000 in favor of Marafioti.
