It was an action-packed weekend at the Victoria Casino in London given that both the Main Event final table and the High Roller final table were played. The latter saw 137 entries (players: 112 and 25 re-entries) and on Saturday the field had been narrowed down a final table with the following 9 players:

1 Gautam Sabharwal 1,113,000
2 JC Alvarado 750,000
3 Talal Shakerchi 1,706,000

6 Faraz Jaka 957,000
7 Fabian Quoss 804,000
8 Eric Sfez 565,000
9 Paul Volpe 448,000

After several hours of play the Brit Talal Shakerchi, who brought the largest stack to the final table, had all the chips after defeating the American pro Faraz Jaka heads up in no-time. Shakerchi, a hedge fund manager and poker player, received £436,330 for taking down the tournament. It was the third tournament cash of his career and he now has $1.5 million in lifetime tournament earnings.

Congratulations to him, to me personally it's a new face, never heard of him before...

If you take a look on the top finishers you realize that there are also a lot of new names there which is good in the end Smile

Talal Shakerchi managed to handle the pressure of the final table, entering it as chipleader and keeping that status until the end of the tourney. The first prize was a good incentive to play well, but some of his opponents may have given tough fight. And Paul Volpe finished 4th, again in a big final table and with a good prize too. I guess it may be better to finish a lot of times in the final table that only once in first in one of these events. If he keeps this way, he can turn into a big winner from paid places just in tourneys.

This was his biggest win of his career but something is telling me there will be more.
