The 2015 World Poker Tour (WPT) U.K. High-Roller Event has wrapped up, sending top-finisher Mian Wei home with £100,000.
Forty-eight players paid the steep £5,250 entrance fee and only 29 survived Day One. But a 50-big blind re-buy option on the second day saw a rush of second-chancers. Of the players who bought back in, only one, eventual fourth-place winner Michael Mizrachi, saw a pay-out for his efforts.
Mizrachi actually led the way when the nine-player final table began. Kuljinder Sidhu had the heartbreaking honor of busting on the bubble, getting eliminated in seventh, just one spot shy of the money.
Daniel McAulay busted in fifth with a 10♢, 7♢ that didn’t measure up to Mizrachi’s J♤, 10♤. Mizrachi then saw his own fortunes turn, not only losing the chip lead but ultimately becoming the next elimination (at the hands of Wei).
About an hour later, Steven Warburton tried his luck by going all-in with K♤, 5♤ against Mario Sanchez Cano’s 10♡, 10♧. The board came Q♡, 2♤, 3♡, 6♢, 8♡, and the pocket pair won out, pitting Cano against Wei in heads-up play.
It took three hours for the top two to finally decide on a champion. The epic back-and-forth finally ended when Sanchez moved all-in with a pair of threes against Wei’s 6♢, 6♤. The top pair again carried the board and Wei was crowned the U.K. High Roller champion.
