WSOP 2013: Anthony Gregg Wins One Drop High Roller For $4.8 Million

WSOP 2013: Anthony Gregg Wins One Drop High Roller For $4.8 MillionAnthony Gregg has won WSOP $111,111 NLHE One Drop High Roller (Event #47), after defeating a tough field of 166 players over four days on his way to winning $4,830,619 and capturing one of the most sought after bracelets of this year’s competition.
The young US pro now boasts $8,631,300 in live career earnings to go with his first ever WSOP bracelet, and commenting on his remarkable career so far, explained: “I started playing in late 2002. Like many poker players, I used to play Magic: The Gathering when I was a kid, and I sort of graduated into poker. I started having a moderate amount of success during my senior year in high school, and didn’t have that much desire for college. So I decided to keep playing poker while I figured out what I wanted to do. I knew I’d be able to make good money doing it, but never imagined it would get to the level it did.”
Entering the charitable High Roller event at the the Rio Casino’s Amazon Room in Las Vegas, were several wealthy businessmen, but mostly a slew of poker pros all aiming to give their chosen professions a massive boost. Amongst the notable names cahing in at the event was Steve Gross in 24th ($173,723), Shaun Deeb in 20th ($173,723), Mike Sexton in 16th ($208,968), and Olivier Busquet in 9th ($384,122).
At the packed final table of eight, Anthony Gregg (Q-Q) subsequently eliminated Martin Jacobson (A-J) in 6th, before being dealt A-Q and doing likewise to Bill Perkins (A-5) in 3rd ($1,965,163), to go heads-up against Chris Klodnicki.
As the heads-up encounter got underway Gregg held a 31.2m to 18.6m chip advantage over Klodnicki, and after just 19 hands Gregg (9-2) and  Klodnicki (7-5) were all-in on a 9-4-3 flop. The turn and river then produced a 5 and 3 to relegate Klodnicki to a runner-up finish worth $2,985,495, while Gregg was crowned the latest One Drop champion.
“I had high hopes for this tournament and it was like a real roller coaster ride. I have been telling my friends that I was going to win for several months and it came true” commented an elated Anthony Gregg after the biggest win of his career.
The final table payouts were as follows:
1. Anthony Gregg — $4,830,619
2. Chris Klodnicki — $2,985,495
3. Bill Perkins — $1,965,163
4. Antonio Esfandiari — $1,433,438
5. Richard Fullerton — $1,066,491
6. Martin Jacobson — $807,427
7. Brandon Steven — $621,180
