The King is pointing towards the Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure - PCA - LogoJake Schindler outlasted Greg Merson and Vanessa Selbst to take down the 2014 PCA High Roller event earlier tonight for $1,192,624.

Here is how the final table ended up finishing out:

1. Jake Schindler, $1,192,624
2. Greg Merson, $948,996
3. Vanessa Selbst, $607,580
4. Mustapha Kanit, $492,600
5. Robert Mizrachi, $389,720
6. Aleksandr Denisov, $292,920
7. Ole Schemion, $216,040
8. Joao Vieira, $157,940
9. Marvin Rettenmaier, $130,720


Jake Schindler started heads-up play with about a 2.5-1 chip lead over Merson. Despite his best efforts, Merson wasn't able to close the gap and eventually fell in second place.

The final hand of the event came after both players agreed to push all-in blind. They turned over:

Merson, 4c-9s
Schindler, Kh-Ts

The board ran out 8s-3s-Tc-Ac-4s, giving Schindler a pair of Tens and the victory.


Vanessa Selbst's performance in this tournament was noteworthy, as she was looking to defend her title (Selbst took down the 2013 PCA High Roller event for $1,424,420).

In the end, it wasn't meant to be for Selbst, as she had to settle for a third place finish ($607,580). This cash, along with her third place finish in the Super High Roller event earlier in the week ($760,640), made this a very profitable trip for Selbst. Selbst continues her march up the all-time money list and now has just south of $10 million in total lifetime tournament cashes.


The 2014 PCA will wrap up later tonight with the conclusion of the Main event, which is still ongoing.
