In a country where gambling is a way of life, the APPT Macau's main event came to conclusion yesterday when Xing Zhou and Ying Kit Chan decided to flip for the title.

Having battled their way through 182 other players, Zhou and Chan stood on the cusp of the ATTP Macau title and a $547,000 pay day.

At the start of the heads-up finale it looked as though Zhou would make quick work of his opponent as he held a commanding 8-1 chip lead.

However, after grinding harder than he's ever done before, Chan managed reduced the deficit to 2-1 before stealing the lead.

The advantage then switched between the two players until a dinner break gave them a little time to reflect on their positions.

Having returned to the table, the pair decided to play a few more hands before letting their natural desires to gamble take over.

Despite Zhou holding the chip lead, he agreed to split the prize money evenly ($454,807 each) and move all-in blind to decide who took home the trophy.

Wow, reducing a 8-1 disadvantage into a 2-1 is a great work from a master player. Noah Schwartz should be inducted to read this, as he is on that final table in theWPT bestbet Jacksonville with a 4-1 advantage to all the remaining 8 players, but that doesn’t mean he’s got everything under control. And after losing such an advantage, no one would expect him to refuse the split agreement. Although that ruins the fame of a tourney, and turns even more angry those who lost trying to reach the top of it.

Those people are all about gambling and they settle the final table in that spirit lol

Too bad we don't see too many Macau players online too, those that play online play way too tight.

I dont think so that i have ever seen such a deal before of splitting the money.
The deals i know come after consideration of the chip stack every player has.

I don't think a split is a bad way to settle it. I mean my concern would be the money and the trophy is just a mantel piece although it'd be nice to win.
I just wonder what they had for dinner since they waited until after they ate to split the winnings. maybe they were just wanting the freee dinner and knew they were going to split after they ate. LOL
