Heads Up for Almost $160K

We are heads up between (Hop) Ricky Lay (left) and Nick Shkolnik (right) for the @HPTPoker Main Event tital and the $159,599 that comes with the title. This is Lay's 2nd major final table of the 2014 HPT Series at Thunder Valley, as he finished 3rd in the opening weekend $200,000 guarantee that was LiveStreamed. He cashed for $27,780 there, falling to eventual champion Kathy Stahl. Shkolnik has a large number of cashes over the past few years, mostly in southern California, and his career earnings are almost exactly equal to today's first prize.
