EPT Grand Final: Philipp Gruissem Wins Another High Roller Title!

Tags: Davidi Kitai, EPT Grand Final, High Roller, John Juanda, Philipp Gruissem, Scott Seiver.
Posted on 05 May 2014 by "T".

Although a €1,105,000 first-place prize was up for grabs on the EPT Grand Final High Roller final table last Friday, it only took approximately 5 hours of play before a winner was crowned. The main reason for this fast-paced final table was that heads-up play only lasted for 1 hand!

Once Davidi Kitai was eliminated in third place for €526,400, Scott Seiver and Philipp Gruissem striked a two-way chop, which left "only" the title and the SLYDE watch to play for, and they agreed to move all in every hand until one of them had all the chip.

Seiver (2Heart3Heart) immediately announced that he was all in, and Gruissem called with QHeartQDiamond. The board ran out 4Heart10SpadeKClubAClub8Club and Gruissem was crowned the champion as he had Seiver covered.

Philipp Gruissem received €993,963 in prize money - enough to move him to the top of the all-time German money list. Also, as the title of this news article suggests, it was not Gruissem's first High Roller title! According to PokerStars Blog, in the past 12 months alone he has won the WSOP APAC High Roller re-buy in Melbourne ($863,386), the $100,000 WPT Alpha8 event in London ($1,379,840) and the $100,000 WPT Alpha8 in St Kitts ($1,086,400).

This guy is the high roller king in my book. In nearly every High Roller event i read about, this guy seems to cash. Congratulations to Philipp Gruissem again and i suspect this wont be the last time

One of the most sickly poker runs I've ever seen by this guy.
On a side note, chopping it up again? Obviously if you do the maths, chopping is probably nearly always +EV unless the opponent is exceptionally weak which is never the case at this level. It's really killing any interest - when both players decide to chop it then shove AI every hand, there is no winner.

Chopping is rarely seen in high rollers as far as I know.

But as we can see, even the high rollers sometimes don´t want to gamble for big amount of money in the heads up where it is mostly about luck.

Congratulations to him, he did awesome on this tournament for sure Big Smile

Not sure why but i have a strange feeling that we'll hear more of this guy on future live tournaments, i really like how he plays some hands when he has the advantage of position.

Funny that Scott Seiver (USA) along with Martin Finger (Germany) ended up this years final table too, but their places sort of ex-changed. From 2nd and 6th to 3rd and 9th. Dunno if anybody noticed this too, just thought this was a fun fact...
