High roller action headed to Wynn Las Vegas last week where five high roller tournaments and the Wynn Millions played out. Jake Schindler and Daniel Negreanu won the first two high rollers of the series before the Wynn Millions $10,000 Main Event began. Following a successful inaugural running in 2021, this year’s installment attracted a 1,075-entrant field and created a prize pool of $10,105,000. PGT regulars Michael Lang (103rd), Sergio Aido (91st), Brock Wilson (41st), and Joey Weissman (29th), Thomas Boivin (10th), Sean Perry (8th), and Vanessa Kade (4th) all finished in the money, while Tony Sinishtaj defeated Isaac Kempton heads-up to collect the $1,655,952 first-place prize. Sinishtaj now sits on top of the PGT leaderboard heading into the U.S. Poker Open, while Kempton sits in second and Perry sits in third.
While the Wynn Millions $10,000 Main Event was playing down, three more Wynn High Rollers were run. Event #3: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em attracted 60 entrants and saw Ali Imsirovic defeat Matas Cimbolas to claim his fourth victory of 2022. Event #4: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em attracted a whopping 73 entrants as Bin Weng defeated Ren Lin heads-up to pocket the $189,800 first-place prize. The final high roller of the series was Event #5: $15,000 No-Limit Hold’em which saw Brekstyn Schutten defeat DoorDash co-founder Stanley Tang to win the $219,300 first-place prize. Perry finished in eighth place to rocket him over the 1,000-point mark.
