All eyes were on Dominik Nitsche as the final table of the €100,000 Super High Roller got underway Sunday evening at the 2018 World Series of Poker Europe. The German was going for back-to-back Super High Roller WSOPE titles against a tough field that included four other WSOP bracelet winners. Nitsche ultimately fell short of the win as Czech pro Martin Kabrhel rallied from a 3.5-1 heads-up chip deficit to win his second career bracelet. Nitsche actually started the final table with the chip lead and put them to good use early. Nitsche raised to 1,000,000 from the cutoff with [poker card="kh"][poker card="ks"] before Michael Addamo, who won the €25,600 High Roller earlier this week, move all in for 10,700,000 with [poker card="ah"][poker card="4h"]. Nitsche called instantly. The [poker card="as"][poker card="kc"][poker card="jc"] flop gave Addamo top pair but gave Nitsche middle set. Neither the [poker card="3c"] turn or [poker card="qs"] river was able to save Addamo and he was eliminated in eighth place. Just over 40 minutes later, another bracelet winner was sent packing. Julian Thomas raised to 1,200,000 from the hijack with [poker card="as"][poker card="ts"] and Adrian Mateos moved all in for 4,775,000 from the small blind with [poker card="kd"][poker card="td"]. Thomas called to see the dealer put out the [poker card="js"][poker card="7d"][poker card="5d"] flop to give Mateos a flush draw. The [poker card="qc"] turn gave Mateos even more outs but the [poker card="3s"] river was not one of them and he was out in seventh. Kabrhel's chip stack enjoyed a major upswing after eliminating two opponents in a single hand. Jan-Eric Schwippert moved all in for 10,700,000 from the cutoff with [poker card="ac"][poker card="8h"], Kabrhel looked down at [poker card="ad"][poker card="as"] on the button and moved all in for 23,800,000 before Nitsche called all in for 15,500,000 from the big blind with [poker card="qd"][poker card="qs"]. The board ran out [poker card="9s"][poker card="6d"][poker card="4c"][poker card="kh"][poker card="tc"] to eliminate Schwippert in sixth and Nitsche in fifth. That hand more than doubled Kabrhel's stack to 51,500,000 and 10 minutes later he was adding even more to it. Kabrhel called from UTG with [poker card="ac"][poker card="qc"], before Mikita Badziakouski raised to 7,700,000 from the small blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="3d"]. David Peters defended the big blind with [poker card="ks"][poker card="tc"] and Kabrhel called behind. The [poker card="4c"][poker card="2h"][poker card="2s"] flop got all three players to check. Badziakouski and Peters both checked the [poker card="9s"] turn but Kabrhel bet 6,000,000. Badziakouski called all in and Peters folded. The [poker card="2c"] river was no help for Badziakouski and he was out in fourth. It took almost two hours to go from three-handed action to heads up. Kabrhel min-raised to 2,400,000 from the button with [poker card="8s"][poker card="7d"], Thomas raised to 26,200,000 from the small blind with [poker card="6d"][poker card="6h"] and Peters moved all in over the top with [poker card="8c"][poker card="8d"]. Kabrhel folded. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="jh"][poker card="tc"] flop changed nothing for Thomas and neither did the [poker card="2h"] turn or [poker card="as"] river. Heads up play began with Peters holding 147,800,000 of the 190,000,000 chips in play. Over the course of the next hour, however, Kabrhel refused to budge and after chipping his way up, eventually found himself dead even with Peters before eliminating the American. Kabrhel opened to 5,500,000 from the button with [poker card="6d"][poker card="6s"] before Peters made it 22,000,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="kh"]. Peters then checked the [poker card="6c"][poker card="5h"][poker card="3d"] flop and Kabrhel bet 14,900,000. Peters announced he was all in for 71,400,000 and Kabrhel called. The [poker card="8h"] turn officially left Peters drawing dead and the [poker card="9d"] river meant Peters was out in second place. This is Kabrhel's second career bracelet. He won the €1,100 No-Limit Hold'em Super Turbo BOUNTY last year also at King's Casino. He has 4 WSOP Circuit rings which also all came at King's. Final Table Payouts Martin Kabrhel - €2,624,340 David Peters - €1,621,960 Julian Thomas - €1,116,308 Mikita Badziakouski - €789,612 Dominik Nitsche - €574,466 Jan-Eric Schwippert - €430,218 Adrian Mateos - €331,943 Michael Addamo - €264,110
The 2019 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is in the books, with notable victories coming from Ramon Colillas in the PokerStars Players NL Hold'em Championship, David 'Chino' Rheem in the PCA Main Event, Sam Greenwood in the PCA $100,000 Super High Roller, and Martin Zamani in the PCA $25,000 High Roller. Each of those players earned mammoth payouts from their victories, but where do they stack up on the 2019 money leaderboard? Let’s take a look. The $25,000 buy-in PSPC was such an enormous tournament that the top three finishers from that event make up the top three spots on the 2019 PCA money list, with Colillas on top thanks to the huge $5.1 million score he earned. Runner-up in that event, Julien Martini, sits second on the list, and third-place finisher Marc Rivera is third on the list. Here are the top 25 money earners from the 2019 PCA festival. Top 25 2019 PCA Money List 1. Ramon Colillas - $5,102,100 2. Julien Martini - $2,974,000 3. Marc Rivera - $2,168,000 4. Sam Greenwood - $1,954,860 5. Scott Baumstein - $1,657,000 6. David 'Chino' Rheem - $1,576,200 7. Jason Koonce - $1,304,000 8. Henrik Hecklen - $1,284,260 9. Rainer Kempe - $1,202,760 10. Jesus Cortes - $1,153,440 11. Stephen Chidwick - $1,084,322 12. Marc Perrault - $1,040,520 13. Talal Shakerchi - $994,300 14. Daniel Strelitz - $964,020 15. Alex Foxen - $904,040 16. Martin Zamani - $895,110 17. Farid Jattin - $746,000 18. Igor Kurganov - $697,100 19. Sean Winter - $673,120 20. Scott Wellenbach - $671,240 21. Chris Hunichen - $627,340 22. Steffen Sontheimer - $623,220 23. Dominik Nitsche - $606,360 24. Pavel Veksler - $560,240 25. Justin Bonomo - $533,370 As you can see, Greenwood sits fourth after having won $1.954 million from the 2019 PCA series. Greenwood's big win was in the $100,000 Super High Roller when he scored a $1.775 million first-place prize, but he also added scores of $89,320, $69,100, and $20,980 to his bankroll. Greenwood was one of 21 players to cash at least four times at the 2019 PCA. Another player to cash four times was the player 18th on the 2019 PCA money leaderboard, Igor Kurganov. He banked scores of $378,760, $129,780, $121,040, and $67,450 for a total of $697,100. The largest of those four scores was a sixth-place finish in the $100,000 Super High Roller that Greenwood was victorious in. Other than Greenwood and Kurganov, no player cashed four times in the top 25. Several players in the top 25 cashed three times, though, in addition to Greenwood and Kurganov, of course. Those players were Rainer Kempe, Jesus Cortes, Stephen Chidwick, Daniel Strelitz, Alex Foxen, Sean Winter, and Steffan Sontheimer. Kempe won the most money of that bunch with more than $1.2 million in payouts. He placed fourth in a $25,000 no-limit hold’em event before he won a $50,000 no-limit hold’em event and a $10,200 no-limit hold’em knockout turbo. The $50,000 buy-in tournament that Kempe won earned him $908,000. Foxen doesn't appear that he's going to slow down after an epic 2018 saw him haul in more than $6.6 million in live tournament earnings. Foxen has already won more than $900,000 in 2019 thanks to his performances at the 2019 PCA. He placed 11th in a $25,000 buy-in event, second in the $50,000 event that Kempe won, and third in another $50,000 buy-in tournament. Foxen's three scores were for $45,020, $651,980, and $207,040 in those three events, respectively. Four players cashed five times each at the 2019 PCA, but none of them ranked higher than 75th on the 2019 PCA money list. Sitting in 75th overall with a total of $136,460 won was Ariel Celestino. Daniel Tang, Sean Legendre, and Fernand Dos Santos Ferreira were the others to cash five times during the 2019 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure tournament series. How did the 2019 PCA change the festival's all-time money list? With a little help from our friends at HendonMob.com, here’s a look at the new top 25 following the completion of the 2019 PCA.

Daniel Dvoress - $1,946,102 25. Tyler Reiman - $1,937,770 As you can see, Bryn Kenney reigns supreme. He came into the 2019 PCA with a big lead on this list, thanks to $6.245 million in earnings from the PCA, and Kenney added a small cash by his standards of $17,620 to move up to $6.262 million. The most notable additions to the top 25 of the PCA all-time money list were three players we already talked about, Colillas, Martini, and Rivera. Those three finished first, second, and third in the 2019 PSPC. Colillas moved to second on PCA's all-time money list, Martini jumped to sixth, and Rivera went up to 20th. Another big jump was had by Greenwood, who entered the 2019 PCA with $972,477 in earnings from the series. After winning nearly $2 million this year, Greenwood shot up the all-time PCA leaderboard to eighth with nearly $3 million in earnings total from the event. Justin Bonomo also increased his standing, going from 17th to 13th on the all-time PCA list after winning $533,370 at the 2019 PCA. Notable departures from the top 5 PCA all-time money list were Christopher Oliver, Eugene Katchalov, Will Molson, and Nick Petrangelo.
