Two days ago Brandon Cantu and Jonathan Aguiar played in the final heads up match of Event #5: €10,450 Mixed Max - No-Limit Hold'em. The duo battled on the felt for the better part of six hours and still no champion was found. All of that will change today.

Brandon Cantu began the match with the chip lead holding 1,770,000 to Aguiar's 1,110,500. Cantu jumped out to a clear lead but Aguiar was able to battle back and finally score a key double up roughly halfway through the match. Aguiar got it all in holding pocket eights on an {A-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} flop, but unfortunately was up against Cantu's {K-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} nut flush. The board paired on the river and gave Aguiar a full house to double up.

As the match wore on, Cantu was able to hit a surge and was able to overtake the chip lead once again. Cantu now leads the match with 1.52 million to Aguiar's 1.361 million.
