Andrew Lichtenberger crushed Erik Seidel to win the title - Aria High Roller $ 25,000
The Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas has run two major High Roller events of $ 25,000 of entry-fee with a view to seducing stars of poker who are currently playing in the World Series of Poker. The first HR event was a bit of surprise with a certain poker enthusiast named Curly entering the battle with $ 125 of entry-fee. As a punishment, the facilitys officials released a statement prohibiting the player in question from playing in all MGM-owned gaming rooms. Surprisingly enough, the famed intruder has successfully sent three notables to the rail, namely Tom Marchese, Jake Schindler and Jason Mercier. The three men were granted compensation bill though. When the trick was uncovered, the tournament returned to normal. And it was Mark Silver who emerged victorious.
The High Roller IX was the second event, and it was a smashing success. It actually attracted a rich panel of renowned professional poker players, including Kyle Julius, Bryn Kenney, Sorel Mizzi and Jason Mercier, all prematurely ousted from the race. After all, the final table was a hard-fought one with the presence of notable players, painting the poker tournament with aggressive action and suspense. Paul Volpe, Brian Rast, Richard Lyndaker, Dan Smith and Justin Bonomo were all in and respectively finished 7th, 6th, 5th, 4th and 3rd place. The final showdown saw Andrew Lichtenberger and the freshly-crowned 100,000 buy-in EPT Grand Final-Super High Roller champion Erik Seidel contending for the title. Despite his thick and vibrant resumé, the latter bowed to Lichtenberger. Both men actually agreed on a deal that saw the 1st-place finisher cashing $ 398,160 of prize.
