World Poker Tour: $100k High Roller Crowned 2 Millionaires!

Tags: Jan-Eric Scwippert, Super High Roller, Tom Marchese, WPT Five Diamond Poker Classic.
Posted on Tuesday, December 13, 2016 by "T".

As part of the WPT Five Diamond Poker Classic, a $100,000 buy-in Super High Roller tournament was played over the weekend at the Bellagio Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. A massive $3,724,000 prize pool was generated thanks to 38 entries, though, only the 6 finalists received a share of it.

Austria's Jan-Eric Scwippert started heads-up holding a near 5 to 1 chip advantage and quickly won a decent size hand to grind down USA's Tom Marchese to less than 10 big blinds. Marchese then shoved with A4 of hearts and Scwippert called with Ax2x. The board delivered a 4x on the turn and Tom Marchese doubled up to about 900,000 in chips.

It didn't take long after this hand before the two pros decided to stop and chop the tournament. Scwippert was awarded with $1,439,274 while Marchese received $1,018,566. It was Scwippert's biggest live tournament cash to date and "just another" seven-figure payday for Marchese, who now is in 10th place on USA's all time money list with $15.6 million in earnings!

Payouts:
Jan-Eric Scwippert $1,439,274
Tom Marchese $1,018,566
Talal Shakerchi $521,360
Erik Seidel $335,160
Christian Christner $223,440
Ankush Mondavia $186,200

well this marchese dude not only sounds like he's from mafia, but appears that he really is... over 15 millions in cashes is quite an impressive figure, even topping one of the best poker players out there under the tables- pochui himself. well done scwippert dude for winning it.

This is really really sick. Crazy big prizes, Great tournament, this is all very surrealistic, but yet, if one wants to succeed he will get there if he REALLY wants it. Because if you don't really really want it, then you do everything for it and you will get there. Most people really want that, but only if you really really want it you will succeed, the world is your oyster.

Do you really really want it? Or you just really want it? Blink

Tournaments for professionals or big spenders trying their luck with the game.
The finalists made some profit. The rest lost a considerable amount of money.
I wonder how many of them really cared about that loss Smile

Congratulations to Jan-Eric Scwippert and Tom Marchese on finishing first and second respectively in the $100,000 buy-in Super High Roller tournament. Well done to everyone participated in this event, especially to the final tablists.

Hey, Robbo1990. Explain why you downvoted my post.

'congrats' copy and paste from article, every time just seems like you just want to get mob points without actually adding anything.

Your line of reasoning is skewed and groundless.
By the way, you ever mentioned you are from South Auckland?
 Calmplay12/18/2016 4:27:56 PM GMT
this guy Erik Seidel you always see his name in the money in those super high roller games which a lot of players would play with high pressure because it's a lot of money even if you super rich, super player Thumbs Up

Congratulations to the two lucky new millionaires Blink Well new, maybe they already were considering the buy-in amount of this tournament.

I know Tom Marchese, Talal Shakerchi and Erik Seidel of course. All three of them are great players. Seidel is the best of the 3 in my opinion, such a solid player who uses his tight image very well.

I wish I can play a wpt event someday Smile

I absolutely do not post comments solely for the purpose of earning points. All of my posts are well constructed and appropriately revised if necessary.
You seem to be pissed off just because someone took all of your chips the other day? Get over it.
 Robbo19901/4/2017 4:13:48 AM GMT
ive played against you? what site?

lol if i have i cannot remember. its because your posts are so generic, the same everytime and like whoever wins will read your 'congrats' on here.

I am 500% sure that none of my posts are identical. And there is nothing wrong with showing love and not being a hater.

participation in such tournaments is certainly very interesting ... but you need to have a lot of free money to allow them to lose ... my congratulations to the two new millionaires but I think that before the tournament they had a few million in the bank
 vaci381/4/2017 12:37:00 PM GMT
we are left to dream on this success, be sure it is the dream of every poker player Smile, but as says pajalnick these players have had a lot of money before this tournament, we are small poker players Smilenever mind I will enjoy looking at TV these big tournaments Smile
