At the start of heads-up, Farid and Rodrigo had almost equal stacks. Each player had more than 40 million chips with the blinds 200 000/500 000 and ante 500 000.

It was expected that the fight would last long, but the game ended pretty quickly after Rodrigo Seiji lost most of his stack with K-2 against Farid Jattin's A-6. Then, there were only 3.4 million chips left in the Brazilian’s stack.
