On Friday, Tom Marchese took down a record 9th career ARIA victory in the ARIA High Roller Series $10K and another player will reach the winner’s circle today, as five players return to play to an ARIA High Roller Series $25K champion on PokerGO

Scott Seiver is in pole position to do just that, as he returns to the final table with a sizable chip lead on the rest of the field. Seiver scored the final Day 1 knockout to bring the field to the final five, and will come back with just shy of 850,000. 

That’s good for more than double his closest competitor, Cary Katz. Despite the chip disadvantage, Katz should not be counted out. He is one of the most prolific ARIA High Rollers in history, with 31 career cashes and eight career wins, and after a steady opening session to this ARIA High Roller Series $25K, will look to improve upon those figures at the final table. 

Behind Katz, three players return near the quarter-million chip mark. Sam Soverel and Brent Hanks are making back-to-back final table appearances, while Sean Winter, who has already won three ARIA High Roller events in 2017, will make his PokerGO debut. 

Despite making the final table, these five players haven’t secured anything just yet. That’s because only three players will cash in the ARIA High Roller Series $25K, meaning that Katz, Soverel, Hanks, and Winter will all likely spend the first few levels of play jockeying for not only position on the leader board, but also for a piece of the $500,000 prize pool. 

A complete list of the final table chip counts is provided below:

1. Brent Hanks – 240,000
2. Scott Seiver – 842,000
3. Sean Winter – 249,000
4. Cary Katz – 376,000
5. Sam Soverel – 273,000
