8 hours heads up is a lot, but if we consider that there were 100,000 euros in game between the two, perhaps it was not much time to decide. I was wondering if they first tryed an agreement about the prize. If i got to a stage like that, i think i would give everything to take the first prize and forget about any type of agreement.

Congrats to your big win and I wish you good luck in other tournaments. I think Live poker is very exciting compared to Online poker.

oh my god,, and I was shiting bricks when I had to play heads up with a Russian for 20 minutes in a 20$ STG, ah well,,, bring on the Russians

Ayfkm? 8 hours of playing.... i would fell asleep on that table.
Or if we would have same chip count i would ask. Hey want to go all-in in the next 20 hands?
But to be honest if i would be playing for extra 100€k... i wouldn't care of the hours for sure. It's for sure better $/h then other jobs Tongue

omg wow 8 hours of headsup is really crazy, it really comes down to patience in such a long headsup. congrats to Isaia for coming on the better side of the duel, he deserves that first prize well
