Hand #194: Tom Marchese Wins the WPT Super High Roller! ($1,308,405)
Level 25: 125,000-250,000, 25,000 ante
Andrew Robl min-raises to 500,000, Tom Marchese reraises to 1,200,000, and Robl thinks for about a minute before he moves all in.
Marchese quickly calls with 88, and Robl turns over A4. Robl will need to improve to stay alive.
The board comes 1085JQ, and Marchese flops a set of eights to win the pot -- and the tournament.
Andrew Robl finishes as the runner-up, earning $822,375.
Tom Marchese wins the second annual WPT Super High Roller, earning $1,308,405 and a double-spiral trophy. The prize money includes a $25,500 seat into next season's WPT World Championship.
