UBOC Final Event players split pot, compete for bracelet

Maria nuccia walked away from his computer Sunday as the winner of the UltimateBet Online Championship Final Event, but not the biggest prize money.

On the advice of poker pro Phil Hellmuth, who was providing audio commentary for the event, maria nuccia and Fred420 decided to split the pot for a $168,450 payday each and compete for the champion's silver UBOC bracelet.

Early on, short stack maria nuccia played a restrained game, staying out most hands. But when it counted, the eventual tournament winner seized his opportunity and doubled up multiple times.

When the table dwindled to heads-up play, maria nuccia met with Fred420, who had a 6-1 chip lead. But after doubling up again and claiming a couple nice pots, the stacks were about even and talk of a deal started to swirl.

Finally, following more than 10 hours of play, maria nuccia held a 10-1 chip lead. Both went into the pot with aces - Fred420 with a three kicker and maria nuccia with a seven. A seven came on the flop and it was all over for Fred420.
