Fabian Quoss Takes Down $1,629,940 For His VictoryPublished on January 8th, 2014 4:55 am EST
Fabian Quoss outlasted 44 other players to take down the PCA 2014 $100,000 Super High Roller event earlier tonight. Quoss walked away with $1,629,940 for his victory, while runner-up Dan Shak walked away with $1,178,980.
The Super High Roller event featured unlimited re-entries until the start of Day 2. 45 people decided to play this year's event, and after re-entries, the prize pool stood at $5,433,120.
The final table included a number of very tough players, including the likes of Quoss, Vanessa Selbst and Antonio Esfandiari. Esfandiari was knocked out in 4th place for $575,920, while Selbst was knocked out in third place ($760,640) shortly after losing a massive pot to Fabian Quoss. Quoss rivered a straight while Selbst made two pair, and Selbst was forced to call a final bet due to the fact that there was already so much money in the pot. Selbst was eliminated a short time later.
The heads-up battle between Quoss and Shak wasn't an extended one - Quoss started with the chip lead and never relinquished it over the course of their hour of play. Quoss slowly but surely chipped away at Shak, with the final showdown taking place with Quoss holding 8s-6h and Shak holding Jh-Tc. With the board reading Td-7c-Qs-9d, Shak raised all-in over the top of a Quoss bet. Quoss instacalled and proudly turned over his straight, while Shak hoped for one of his seven outs to hit. The river brought the Ace of clubs, and Shak was eliminated in second place for $1,178,980.
Here is how the final table ended up finishing out:
1st, Fabian Quoss, $1,629,940
2nd, Dan Shak, $1,178,980
3rd, Vanessa Selbst, $760,640
