The 2014 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $25,000 High Roller is won by Jake Schindler
With skill and smart strategies Jake Schindler has won the 2014 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $25,000 no-limit hold’em high roller, earning the first-place prize of $1,192,624 after overcoming Greg Merson to secure the title.
The two made a deal once heads-up play began, setting aside $200,000 from the prize pool and splitting the remainder to assure Schindler at least $992,624 and Merson $948,996 based on their chip counts, leaving the trophy and the extra money to play for.
On the final four hands of play Merson moved all-in preflop without looking at his cards, and on the final hand Schindler agreed to also shove blind. “That was his idea,” said Schindler after play ended. “At first I was going to wait for a good hand to call with, Q-7 or better, but I didn’t feel like waiting anymore.”
Early on the third and final day of play the record-setting field of 247 was narrowed down to just eight players, with a number of tournament poker’s top professionals looking to add the next huge score.
The storyline that drew the most attention, however, was Vanessa Selbst’s run at defending her win in this event in 2013. Last year she topped a field of 204 to win over $1.4 million. Android casino poker on your mobile is another way to go, but the prizes won’t be so impressive.
