The Wynn Las Vegas was set to host three $10,000 buy-in High Roller tournaments over the weekend, and with an impressive turnout from the high roller community, a fourth tournament was added on Sunday.
Back in March, the Wynn Las Vegas was one of the first poker rooms to begin implementing COVID-19 cleaning protocols during the Wynn Spring Classic, before also being one of the first poker rooms to close their doors as a safety precaution. They were also one of the last poker rooms to reopen, but that hasn’t deterred the action from returning to the Wynn Las Vegas even with a temporary relocation from the Encore to the Wynn.
On Thursday, a total of 49 entries created a prize pool of $490,000 that paid the top seven finishers. The usual contingent of high roller players finished in-the-money with Martin Zamani defeating Christopher Brewer to win $140,107 first-place prize and see his lifetime tournament winnings climb over $2.5 million.
