Morgan Aceto, since the beginning of the heads-up match, was leaning hard on his opponent Éric Laliberté. He managed to bring him down to almost 20M chips, before both were dealt an ace, and the preflop all-in ensued.
Aceto, after all his painstaking work, is now an underdog, with about 27M to Laliberté’s 42M. Players are taking a break while the tournament staff crunches the ICM number. As a reminder, in partypoker LIVE events, 10% of the remaining prize pool needs to remain for the eventual winner.
