Scott Seiver Wins $2m At PCA Super High Roller

Scott Seiver Wins $2m At PCA Super High RollerScott Seiver has won the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure PCA Super High Roller, after overcoming a field of 59 players in the re-entry event to walk away with the title, and collect the $2,003,480 first place prize. With his latest victory at the Atlantis Casino in The Bahamas, the 27 year old US pro now takes his live career earnings to an impressive $6,986,732.
Turnout for the $100k re-buy tournament was 85% higher than last year and managed to create a massive prize pool worth $5,724,180. By the time the final table of eight had been reached David “Doc” Sands was the table leader with around 45% of the chips in play, while Seiver was way behind in 6th spot on just 5%.
Then within the first seven hands of play, three players were eliminated starting with Dan Shak in 8th ($228,960), whose Kd-Jd shove on a 10-9-9 flop faltered against the A-A of Seivers. Next, Nick Schulman (A-A) dispatched Vladimir Troyanovskiy (10-10) to the rail in 7th ($257,580), before subsequently picking up K-K and eliminating Greg Jensen (A-5) in 6th for $286,200.
Seiver (Ks-Qs) then won an all-in  pre-flop race against Philipp Gruissem (A-8) to see off the German in 5th ($400,700), while David Sands took out a severely short-stacked Cary Katz in 4th ($543,800). Sands (10-10) followed up by eliminating Nick Schulman (Ks-6s) in 3rd ($744,140) to go heads-up against Seiver.
At the start of play Sands held a 3-2 chip lead over Seiver, but after losing an all-in pre-flop holding 10-10 to his opponent’s 9-9, he found himself all-in again soon after this time with K-4. Seiver made the call with A-7 and after the board rolled out Q-8-5-9-3, David Sands was relegated to a runner-up finish worth $1,259,320, while Scott Seiver was crowned the 2013 PCA Super High Roller champion.
The final table payouts were as follows:
1st Scott Seiver $2,003,480
2nd David Sands    $1,259,320
3rd Nick Schulman $744,140
4th Cary Katz    $543,800
5th Philipp Gruissem $400,700
6th Greg Jensen    $286,200
7th Vladimir Troyanovsky $257,580
8th Dan Shak $228,960
