Heads up play began with Willie Wiggins holding a nearly two-to-one chip lead over Frank Lewis and they didn’t wait long to get things going.
Willie Wiggins – 75,100,000 (75 bb)
Frank Lewis – 38,200,000 (38 bb)
On the first hand, Lewis opened to 3,000,000 and Wiggins moved all in.
“I can’t let you run over and raise me off every hand,” Wiggins told Lewis.
“Let’s do it,” Lewis said after thinking about it for two minutes.
Lewis ran into a bigger ace and needed to improve to double up. The flop changed nothing then Lewis was drawing dead after the Wiggins paired his jack on the turn. The river finished the board and Wiggins took the outright win.
Lewis earned $100,680 for his second-place finish, not too shabby, and Wiggins took home $163,290 plus the SPS trophy.
1st: Willie Wiggins – $163,290 + SPS Trophy
2nd: Frank Lewis – $100,680
