On Saturday, German poker pro Ole Schemion took down the EPT Grand Final €100,000 Super High Roller for close to €1.6 million. Schemion had been on a 2-3 months break from live tourneys before the win.
83 runners (including Isaac Haxton, Phil Ivey and other big names) created a prize pool of HK$20,750,000 for the HK$250,000 buy-in ACOP High Roller event this weekend. It took almost 17 hours of play over 2 days to play down to a winner: Germany's Fabian Quoss who defeated Yu Liang heads-up to lay hands on the HK$5,271,000 first-place prize (US $670,000).
A big congratulations to Fabian Quoss, the winner of the 2014 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Super High Roller! The German pro bested an extremly tough field of 45 players (54 entries), including the final table with poker stars such as Dan Shak, Vanessa Selbst and Antonio Esfandiari, over three days of poker in the Bahamas to lay hands on $1,629,940 in prize money! According to PCA's webiste, 2013 was a rough year for Quoss on the tournament circuit, so the prize money will most probably come in handy for him.

Even though there are so many tournaments, both online and live, running at the moment, it didn't stop a big field of poker players from taking part in the 2010 English Poker Open in London. Among the field of players were notables such as Phil Laak and Liv Boeree, however, there were no familiar names who made it to the final table.
After a 6 hour battle on the final table, Fabian Quoss stood as winner of the tournament after defeating his final opponent Sebastian Crul. A big congratulations to Fabian Quoss and to his biggest cash ever, £220,650.
