  • PokerStars EPT High Roller Event Won by Matt Glantz

    Monday, October 5th, 2009 by t2admin

The High Roller event of PokerStars European Poker Tour London has ended and seventy five players paid the GBP20, 000 buy-in to compete. After it was all said and done it was Matt Glantz of Pennsylvania who took home the first place prize.
Glantz first had to get past poker pro Erik Cajelais of Canada before he could claim the win. Cajelais started the day as the chip leader when final table play began and he looked good for the win, but Glantz would outplay the pro and take home the GBP 542,000 first place prize. The final hand would see Glantz’s A-2 hold up against Cajelais’ Q-J.

Glantz was able to outlast the rest of the final table players as well as other big names during the competition, which was quite impressive. Greg Raymer, Barry Greenstein, Bertrand Grospellier, Dave Ulliot, Chris Moneymaker, Tom Dwan, Phil Ivey, Dennis Phillips and Eugene Katchalov were just a few of the poker pros getting in on the action.

Glantz commented on the quality of players competing in the tournament by stating: “Probably, out of the top 100 tournament players in the world, 50 to 60 were in this tournament.” Glantz’s previous cash outs include fourth place at the 2008 WSOP $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. event. Glantz began playing poker in 2004 and is known for being a big player at the Bellagio and an avid poker blogger.
