SugarRush Challenge Winners (From Left): Ian Gavlick, Roberto Ilagan, Joe Del Grosso, Jeffery Peters, Tom Goshaw. 

Once Dave McConachie was eliminated, the final five players looked at their options and decided to see if a chip chop was worth further investigating. After plugging in the numbers from their respective stacks, the finalists agreed to a deal and adjusted the prize pool accordingly. As a result of the deal and by virtue of having the highest chip total, Roberto Ilagan is the winner of the SugarRush Challenge.

Ian Gavlick takes second after buying in at the start of Day 2, proving once again that the unique SugarRush Challenge structure can be tamed by any buy-in at any time. Joe Del Grosso earns third place and has plenty to show for his stack of 62,500 that started the day. Tom Goshaw started the day as the chip leader and held strong to earn a place in the deal. Taking fifth is Jeffery Peters, who grabbed chips early in the final table and kept them long enough to earn a five-figure score. A list of the deal and places for the players is below. A winner’s recap will be posted shortly.

  1. Roberto Ilagan – $15,125
  2. Ian Gavlick – $13,811
  3. Joe Del Grosso $13,668
  4. Tom Gashow – $13,003
  5. Jeffery Peters – $11,043
