Jake Schindler Wins $25K PCA High Roller For $1.19mJake Schindler has won 2014 PCA $25K High Roller, after overcoming a field of 198 players over three days on his way to capturing the title, and collecting the $1,192,624 first place prize.
Following his remarkable victory at the Atlantis Resort & Casino in Paradise Island, the US pro, commented: “I’m pretty numb right now, I don’t know what to think – I’m speechless. I thought it was going to be pretty tough – which it was..It was really hard to put them on hands and assess their ranges and what not. It was definitely a really tough experience but a really awesome one”
The $25K High Roller attracted almost 200 of the best players in the world, and had an additional 49 rebuys to create a prize pool worth $6,051,500. Amongst the biggest names cashing in at the event was Jake Cody in 24th ($59,300), Chris Klodnicki in 17th ($71,400),  Philipp Gruissem in 16th ($80,480), Daniel Negreanu in 14th ($89,560), and Marvin Rettenmaier in 9th ($130,720).
After the final table of eight got underway, start of the day chip leader Vanessa Selbst (8-8) eliminated Robert Mizrachi (K-J) in 5th for $389,720, before being dealt pocket aces and doing likewise to Mustapha Kanit (J-J) in 4th for $492,600.
Unfortunately for Selbst, however, 20 minutes later she shoved from the button with A-9, and after Jake Schindler called with A-10, the board subsequently rolled out A-Q-3-5-K to eliminate her in 3rd place for $607,580.
With just Jake Schindler and 2012 WSOP Main Event champ Greg Merson left in the competition, the two pros then decided to split the prize money $992,624 and $948,996 respectively, and play for the remaining $200,000. The final hand of the tournament then saw Schindler K-10 best Merson’s 9-4 to hand Schindler the PCA title.
