2014 PCA High Roller Event Win Goes to Fabian Quoss

PokerstarsThe European Poker Tour was in the Caribbean earlier this week for the PokerStars Caribbean adventure and the $100,000 High Roller was a highly anticipated event. Top players from around the world attended the PCA and only the best of the best paid the $100,000 buy-in to compete in the high roller event.

When final table began, it was Dan Shak in the chip lead at 3.7 million while Vanessa Selbst was a close second with 3.6 million+. Antonio Esfandiari, Fabian Quoss, Matt Glantz, Tony Gregg and Ole Schemion would finish up the final table.

The first two to go would be Gregg and Schemion as they had the low chip stack. Both would be eliminated at the same time when they went all in and were called by Quoss. Pocket tens held up for Quoss and both players were eliminated from the competition.

Glantz was the next short stack so he was out next followed by Selbst would eliminate Esfandiari and then the tournament players got serious. It would be some time before Selbst would be eliminated in third place. The pro would move all in with K-9 preflop and Quoss would call holding A-4 suited. The board fell 6-2-3 with a 4 on the turn and 3 on the river, giving Quoss the pot and Selbst a 3rd place finish.

Quoss and Shak would return after a dinner break and Quoss had a nice lead with 9.2 million to 4.795 million in chips. Quoss continued to stay ahead and it would take close to one hour before the final hand would go down. Shak moved all in after the turn with T-7-Q-9 on the board and Quoss would call. An Ace on the river would not help Shak who held J-T against Quoss 8-6, a straight.
