The recently concluded PokerStars North American Poker Tour series held at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut was a can’t miss event if you won a title there last year considering the two biggest tournaments of the series were won by the same players who triumphed in them last year!

Team Poker Stars Pro Vanessa Selbst managed to repeat in the $5,000 buy-in Main Event, adding $450,000 to her bankroll on Wednesday; and her fellow Team PokerStars Pro Jason Mercier managed to defend his High-Roller Bounty Shootout title from last year as he pocketed $246,600 on his way to victory.

Like Selbst, Mercier was confronted with a tough heads-up opponent in Eugene Katchalov –yet another Team PokerStars Pro—but Mercier managed to put away PCA Super-High-Roller winner giving him his ninth bounty of the tournament which also locked up the $20,000 bonus that went to the player collecting the most bounties in the tournament.

Here are the complete final table results from the NAPT High-Roller Bounty Shootout at Mohegan Sun::

1.    Jason Mercier — $246,600 (six Round 1 bounties, three Round 2 bounties, his own bounty money, $20,000 bounty bonus, $40,000 for winning his first round table, and $142,600 for winning the final table)
2.    Eugene Katchalov — $68,000
3.    Michael Pesek — $70,000
4.    Jonathan Jaffe — $54,000
5.    Taylor von Kriegenbergh — $44,000
6.    Jimmie Guinther — $42,000
7.    Scott Blackman — $44,000
8.    Micah Raskin — $46,000
9.    Joe Sweeney — $52,000
