Despite over six hours of heads-up play, the final match up between Brandon Cantu and Jonathan Aguiar has not yet reached its conclusion. The casino closed its doors at 5:00 AM CET, and, much like Event #4: €3,250 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout, the players were forced to stop for the night.

Players and tournament staff are currently unsure as to when this heads-up match will resume. Day 1b of the WSOP Europe Main Event begins on Sunday, and both Aguiar and Cantu plan on playing. Cantu insisted that the two must finish this match tomorrow while Aguiar stated that he is not interested in missing levels of the Main Event.

When the match was halted for the night, Cantu had the lead with 1.52 million in chips to Aguiar's 1.361 million.

Staff told the players that a solution will be figured out tomorrow. As soon as there is concrete information as to when play will resume, PokerNews will let you know.
