Fabian Quoss Wins 2014 PCA $100k Super High Roller For $1.6m

Fabian Quoss Wins 2014 PCA $100k Super High Roller For $1.6mGermany’s Fabian Quoss has won the 2014 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $100,000 Super High Roller, after besting a field of 56 players over three days on his way to claiming the title, and collecting the $1,629,940 first place prize.
The $100k Super High Roller took place at the Atlantis Resort & Casino, Paradise Island, and attracted a small but tough field to create a prize pool worth $5,433,120, which included 10 re-buys.
By the time the final table of eight had been set, Fabian Quoss was one of the shortest-stacks at the table, but managed to boost his chips after being dealt pocket tens and scoring a double-elimination over micro-stacks Ole Schemion (K-4) and Anthony Gregg (A-9) after the board rolled out Q-2-2-2-9. The players then finished 7th ($277,080) and 6th ($347,720) respectively.
Vanessa Selbst (A-J) subsequently eliminated Matt Glantz (J-10) in 5th ($445,520), before being dealt A-K and doing likewise to Antonio Esfandiari (9-9) in 4th ($575,920). However, Selbst proceeded to lose a few keys hands against Quoss, and after being reduced to a short-stack herself, was dispatched to the rail when her K-9 pre-flop shove was bested by Quoss holding A-4.
With Selbst’s departure in 3rd ($760,640), the heads-up phase of the competition got underway between Quoss on a 9.6m stack and Dan Shak with 4.3m in chips. Eventually, the defining hand was played when Shak (J-10) went all-in on a Q-10-7-9 board, but found himself up against the 8-6 of Quoss. The river produced a harmless A to consign Dan Shak to a runner-up finish worth $1,178,980, while Fabian Quoss was crowned the 2014 PCA Super High Roller champion.
With his latest victory, the 31-year-old from Nuremburg now boasts $4,957,464 in tournament winnings since recording his first live cash back in 2008. Following his remarkable victory in the Bahamas, Quoss, said: “This one is probably one of the tougher [high rollers] of the year. The field was very strong, and I am very happy to have scored the title. Finally a few key all-ins went my way. I won a few very crucial flips or had hands were I had the better hand, but if they positions were reversed the money would have still gone all in anyways, so yeah, obviously I’m very happy.”
