I have never known a heads up battle for the title last so long. They played for 12 hours just to see who wins the bracelet which i find quite mind boggling. WEll done to Preston Lee for eventually coming out on top

A heads-up with good players it's possible.
------------ There were some final tables in this WSOP series with American players who dominated but it is normal. This series is in united states of america and many citizens of this country love this games a lot. More than that can be because they know poker. They can also have good results in Europe if wsop moves here. Anyway congratulations for the winners of final table.
