Dayton PTQ/SCG Elite IQ

Shoutout to Riley for winning the PTQ!
Dave split in the finals of the Elite IQ on Sunday, was pretty lucky to do so.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK
Caleb Durward and Cody Lingelbach played on camera in the top 4 of the TCGPlayer 50K. Since the top 4 had split, they made a gentleman’s agreement to mulligan to 2 (or 4 for game 3).
While this is technically legal, do we feel like this made a mockery of the tournament and/or coverage? Caleb apologized to the community via Facebook, do we feel like this was necessary or are people making a big deal about nothing?
