Bill Perkins vs. Landon Tice – Day 4 Recap
By Bob Garcia
Mondays are usually the worst day of the week for many people, but not if you like to rail incredible heads-up cash game battles. That’s exactly what happened on the Americas Cardroom Twitch channel yesterday as Bill Perkins faced off against Landon Tice in Day 4 of their epic match.
If you didn’t watch it live, you can view all glorious 2 hours and 15 minutes here.
Day 4 Winner: Bill Perkins by $44,000 (334 hands)
Match Total: Through 4 days of play and 1,679 total hands, Tice is up $54,000
As you can see from the results, this match is a lot of closer than most people anticipated. In fact, our own marketing materials dubbed it as a battle of “David vs. Goliath”. David was course Perkins, who is a hedge fund manager, while Goliath was Tice, the 21-year-old up-and-coming tournament poker sensation.
However, Perkins has held his own so far, winning two of the four days of action, with each player alternating victories. Here’s what Tice had to say on his Twitter account last night when it was over.
“Lost KK vs AA pre, not too much happened today. Not every day’s a bloodbath. More soon.”
The action will resume for Day 5 shortly, although the exact date is not known. The next commentators will also be announced shortly. There have been several ACR Team Pros who have entertained audiences so far with their announcing, including the legendary Chris Moneymaker.
