Jake Schindler dominated the 2018 partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Grand Final Barcelona €101,000 Buy-in Super High Roller event late Wednesday night at Casino Barcelona in Spain, after defeating a strong field of 48 entrants (which featured some of the best professional poker players in the world), bringing home the first prize money worth €1,750,000!
This year's $300,000 Super High Roller Bowl event in Aria has 56 of the world's best poker players as well as leading amateurs buying-in for $300,000 apiece for the opportunity to take home the Super High Roller Bowl championship ring plus a grand prize worth $6 million!
Rio All-Suite and Casino was packed with players last Friday when low buy-in event The Colossus kicked off. Some of poker's biggest stars therefore headed over to Aria for a $25,000 High Roller instead.
A big congratulations to Noah Schwartz, the winner of World Poker Tour Alpha8 Florida! The $100,000 buy-in event attracted a small but tough field of players (Jason Mercier, Byron Kaverman, Dan Colman, Jake Schindler, Noah Schwartz and Bryn Kenney), which meant that the entire prize pool would go to the last man standing.
On Monday, Vanessa Selbst, the winner of the 2013 PCA High Roller, had an incredible chance to defend her title as she had the chip lead with only 14 players remaining in the 2014 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure High Roller ($25,000 buy-in, 247 entries).
Things went really well at first, and after she had sent Mustapha Kanit packing in 4th place with pocket aces against pocket jacks (all-in preflop) things looked even better as she had about 5.5 million chips - slightly behind the chip leader, Jake Schindler, and well ahead of Greg Merson, the winner of the 2012 WSOP Main Event.
