The $100,000 Super High Roller at the 2012 World Poker Tour World Championship was played last Friday and Tom Marchese took down the tournament for a bit more than $1,3 million. Andrew Robl finished as the runner-up, earning $822k.

Marchese had to top a really tough field of 27 players, who entered a total of 34 times in this re-entry event. He was knocked out already during the first day, but decided to re-enter the tournament...

"I wasn't sure about re-entering, but I had some friends who told me it would be silly not to," Marchese told Card Player after the win. "I was on the way home then, so I just stopped off, took a shower to refresh myself, drove back to the Bellagio and managed to run it up to this, so it all worked out."

This was Marchese's biggest cash of his career, with the previous biggest cash being the 1st place finish in 2010 PokerStars North American Poker Tour (NAPT) Venetian Main event ($827,648)

Final table results:
1st: Tom Marchese - $1,308,405
2nd: Andrew Robl - $822,375
3rd: John Juanda - $526,320
4th: Daniel Perper - $394,740
5th: Bill Klein - $263,160
6th: Justin Bonomo - $0

Bill Klein was the one with less chips when this final table started and, although he had three times less chips than, Justin Bonomo, he managed to get paid, leaving Bonomo as the money bubble.Daniel Perper was leading, followed by Andrew Robl and Tom Marchese, but Marchese switched places with him in the end and won.

Yeah! It's very complicated to re-enter a tournament and get ITM, and winning it, it's even harder. So great work for him! Thumbs Up

i mentioned this some time ago and i can only repeat myself- really doubt this tournament (as most of high roller tournaments) is a good value tourney at all- there is way to tough play field, with most of the players considered being pro's, i think even the 1 mill buy in tourney is a better investment considering the entries- businessmen, celebrities etc.
