U.S. player wins WSOPE Super High Roller event

It was a small field filled with big names in the 2017 World Series of Poker Europe €25,000 Super High Roller event and although there was no bracelet up for grabs, the pride and plenty of money up top were motivation enough. A field of 21 entries, including five re-entries, emerged, and it was Dan Shak who defeated Mikita Badziakouski heads-up to claim the victory and a payday of €210,112.

The top four spots were guaranteed a share of the €492,765 prize pool, and Ivan "Negriin" Luca ended up as the bubble boy, while Steffen Sontheimer took home the min cash of €67,555. The seemingly unbeatable Bryn Kenney survived several all-in showdowns and eventually bowed out in third place for €85,238. Shak entered heads-up with a commanding lead and it only took three hands to determine a champion.

"It was a small but stacked field, I was probably the only non-pro. Me and Jean-Noel (Thorel)," he said after the final hand.

"We enjoy the game," a delighted Shak added and left the tournament area with a big smile on his face. The American plays in some of the highest buy-ins on the international poker circuit all over the world and has crossed $9 million in cashes already with his win at the King's Casino in Rozvadov.
