With a buy-in of over $31,000 American, the High-Roller Event tends to draw only the cream of the crop of the poker world. Last year, Jason Mercier –who pwned the European felt in 2008— outlasted 85 other entrants to capture the title: A win that solidified Mercier’s standing as one of the top up-and-comers in poker.

This time around, it was another rising star who took home the title and the $866,000 first-place prize-money, Matt Glantz.
This was no walk in the park for Glantz, the final table included Ilari “ziigmund” Sahamies, Dennis Phillips, Eugene Katchalov, and Eric Cajelais. In the end it was Glantz and Cajelais playing heads-up for the crown, with Glantz coming out on top.

Don’t feel too bad for Cajelais: He won event #2 Pot Limit Hold’ Em/Pot Limit Omaha, and will walk away with over $500k for his runner up finish in the high-roller event: All-in-all, a pretty good trip to London!
