The final two players have decided to chop up the remaining prize pool with the stipulation that chip leader Harvey Vandeven be declared the champion of the Card Player Poker Tour bestbet Jacksonville main event. Vandeven topped a field of 255 players to get to the final heads-up match against TK Miles, who finished in second as decided by the chop.
The chip counts at the start of heads-up play were 3,730,000 for Vandeven and 1,410,000 for Miles; but Vandeven decided he wanted the glory, trophy, and Card Player Poker Tour title. They split up the money though, so each of the two finalists receive $76,598.
Congratulations to our newest CPPT champion, Harvey Vandeven; and thanks to the bestbet Jacksonville for hosting a great tournament.
