Mark Amparo overcame a field of almost 600 players at the Metro Card Club to win the first-ever Neil Arce Dirty Ice Cream Cup.

Amparo, a regular high-stakes player at the Metro Card Club, started the day just fourth in chips but managed to climb up the ranks until he found himself heads-up against Rochee De Leon.

It didn't take long for Mark to win himself the title. On the very first hand of their one-on-one battle, Rochee went all-in on a board of {8-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} with pocket kings. However, he was instantly called by Mark, who had hit a diamond flush with {9-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}.

With the win, Mark became the champion of the Dirty Ice Cream Cup. He won the trophy, Php 880,000 in cash, and a seat to the PAGCOR Chairman's Cup worth Php 120,000.

Meanwhile, Rochee won Php 400,000 in cash and a seat to the Chairman's Cup.
