Team partypoker’s Isaac Haxton won a $25,500 Super High Roller last week and the superstar got his hands on the latest $25,500 event we ran on August 23. if this trend continues, we may have to rename the event the Isaac Haxton Championship!
WPT Super High Roller Results
Twenty-one players bought into this tournament, exactly the same as the previous Super High Roller Haxton triumphed in. The field was ridiculously stacked, as you’d expect from a $25,500 buy-in tournament.
Our very own Jason Koon was the eight-handed final table’s first casualty. Daniel Dvoress, Dan Smith, and Stephen Chidwick joined Koon on the sidelines and left only four players in the hunt for the title with only three spots paid.
Seri Reixach was the unfortunate soul to pop the bubble. His fourth-place exit was quite costly because third-place weighed in at $105,000!
This sum went to Jake Schinlder and his bust out left Haxton and Russian grinder Artur Martirosian to battle it out one-on-one.
Haxton defeated Martirosian to bank the $262,500 top prize and leave Martirosian to walk away with the $157,500 consolation prize.
WPT High Roller Results
Kahle Burns, who is flying high in the Mix-Max Championship that’s going into Day 2, won the $10,300 WPT High Roller in August 23. Burns was one of 17 players to buy into this event and his eventual first-place finish weighed in at $85,000.
Recent guest on the Jaime Staples Weekly Poker Showdown Benjamin Rolle finished in fourth-place and was the last player to go home empty-handed. This paved the way for Chidwick to secure the $34,000 third-place prize.
Burns and Slovenian high-stakes pro Rok Gostisa locked horns and butted heads for the lion’s share of the prize pool. That went to Burns after he sent Gostisa to the showers, but not before Gostisa collected the $51,000 runner-up prize.
WPT High Roller Turbo Results
Timothy Adams is no stranger to high stakes tournaments’ final tables. It’s rare he doesn’t take them down once he reaches the last handful of players. That’s why it wasn’t surprising to see Adams’ name at the top of the payouts in the $5,200 WPT High Roller Turbo.
Adams outlasted 28-opponents on his way to banking $61,506. His prize would have been even larger had he not struck a deal with Jake Schindler when the last standing duo was heads-up. That deal saw Schindler bag $43,618 for his troubles.
Elio Fox was the first player to cash. Fox’s fourth-place finish was worth $14,500. Former MILLIONS Online winner Jon Van Fleet was the other grinder to secure a prize. The Canadian walked away with a $25,375 return on his initial investment.

WPT Mix-Max Warm Up Results
We don’t get many players who call the Dominican Republic home but one player from there certainly knows how to navigate his way through shark-infested tournaments.
Alberto Meran finished second in a $1,050 buy-in WPT Knockout Turbo and won $22,116 with bounties included. He then went on to take down the WPT Mix-Max Warm Up and turn another $1,050 into a colossal $89,578.
Meran defeated Germany’s Marc Berger heads-up for the title. Berger consoled himself with a still respectable $67,417 second-place prize.
Look a little further down the payouts and you’ll see the name of Irishman Daniel Smyth. Smyth finished fourth for $37,380 only a few days after winning the Knockout Championship event for a career-best $428,391. What a superb run Smyth is enjoying right now.

|7||Chun Fai Au||Canada||$14,418|
