Event 20: Running Late

$1000 + $90 No Limit Hold'em (6-Max)

Heads Up runner up Tim Tuveson (Philadelphia, PA) says he barely made it into the field. "I was driving 80 miles an hour and at one point thought I wasn't going to make it."

Tuveson says he registered at 11:58, two minutes before the event closed. The University of Pennsylvania student says he didn't get much sleep which is understandable after playing Brandon Zaucha (Chicago, IL) for four hours in the championship match that didn't end until after 3 am.

Defending champion and this year's 5th/6th finisher Jeremy McLaughlin is also in the field. McLaughlin is all-in and at risk, but survives when his opponent tables the exact same hand as both have A J.
