After coming into the final day as chip leader, Jake Schindler defeated Paul Phua in heads-up play to win the $250,000 Super High Roller Bowl Europe Main Event for $3,200,000 at Merit Crystal Cove Casino and Resort in North Cyprus.
The event drew 32 entrants for a prize pool of $8,000,000 and was streamed on the PokerGO YouTube channel. Phua picked up $2,080,000 for second place, while Christoph Vogelsang took home $1,280,000 for their third-place finish. Timothy Adams and Teun Mulder finished fourth and fifth, respectively.
Schindler previously finished third in Triton’s Event #2, a $903,000 score, but a disappointing finish considering he held the chip lead until Mulder, the eventual winner, cracked his pocket queens. The disappointment set up the opportunity for redemption with the $3.2 million win.
“It feels great to run good in the big one. I had a disappointing finish in the $100K, even if the result was good, so it’s great to win this one.”
Meanwhile, after a series with its share of ups and downs, the champ will take a short rest before getting right back to it in Monaco and throughout the Summer.
“I plan to be at EPT Monte Carlo, and I will be playing some of the higher buy-ins throughout the World Series.”
