With Alfred Karlsson’s double up at the end of Level 35, the tournament director paused the heads-up match for the day after both played more than 16 hours of action.
Karthik Ramakrishnan will return with the lead but Karlsson battled through the day to stay in contention. Both players seemed relieved to call it a night and they will return tomorrow at 3pm to play it out.
