Dan Smith and Marvin Rettenmaier are neck-and-neck in a few Player of the Year races, and with a runner-up finish in this event, it looks like Rettenmaier will seize at least one of those titles.
Smith meandered to the table a few minutes ago, and Rettenmaier told him, "Please tell me you aren't playing in anything else after this."
Smith shook his head.
"If you were celebrating about winning, I would've probably played something just to spite you," he said. "There is a 10K in Lebanon on Christmas..."
"No," Rettenmaier corrected him. "That's in January."
Fabian Quoss threw his head back in laughter, and the heads-up match continued.
