Fabian Quoss Victorious In 2014 PCA $100k Super High Roller
German phenom takes home over $1.6 million.
German high roller Fabian Quoss bested a small but extremely talented field of 56 runners (45 unique entries) to capture the 2014 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $100k High Roller Championship.
The over $1.6 million first place prize puts Quoss’ lifetime earnings just shy of $5 million and, according to the PokerStars Blog, the win marks Quoss’ 4th major title which includes a victory in the WPT $15k High Roller in Sept 2012.
To earn the right to hoist the trophy would not be an easy task as the final table was stacked with some of the world’s top talent including Ole Schemion (7th), Tony Gregg (6th), Matt Glantz (5th) and more.
Antonio Esfandiari, no stranger to playing for the absolute highest stakes, bowed out in 4th place when he lost a race to 2013 PCA High Roller Champion Vanessa Selbst. Selbst, arguably the favorite at the start of the final table, would have to settle for third this year, taking home north of $760k.
The last person Quoss would have to take down would be Team Ivey pro, and self-described poker hobbyist, Dan Shak. Shak had found himself in this position before, having made the final table of the PCA Super High Roller in each of the past three years. Much like 2012 when he came runner-up to Victor “Isildur1” Blom, Shak would again have to settle for second as the charitable hedge fund manager walked away with nearly $1.2 million for his efforts.
Quoss would have little time to celebrate his first 7-figure victory as he’s slated to play Day 1B of the 2014 PCA Main Event which kicks off at 12:00pm EST.

1 – Fabian Quoss – $1,629,940
2 – Dan Shak – $1,178,980
