Timothy Adams wins WPT High Roller at PartyPoker
The famous Canadian high roller Timothy Adams has won a few expensive events at PartyPoker this summer.
In June, he captured the $10 300 High Roller Club Main Event with a $580 000 prize pool and received $169 596 for first place (based on the deal).
Yesterday, the player once again took down an expensive tournament at PartyPoker, earning $135 850 in prize money. That event had the same buy-in of $10 300, while its guarantee accounted for $300 000.
The WPT High Roller event brought together a field of 38 players, which allowed to break the claimed guarantee and form a prize pool of $380 000.
Another poker player, performing under the flag of Canada, turned out to be a runner-up of the tournament. It was the $25 500 ME High Roller Club champ Nick Petrangelo. His payout for second place amounted to $118 740.

Overall, Five players entered the ITM zone of the event. The minimum prize money of $26 600 went to the Canadian poker player Pascal Lefrancois. David Peters busted in 6th place but left with nothing, as he happened to be a bubble boy of the given tourney.
