David Sands Wins WPT World Championship Super High Roller

It is very rare that you make a World Poker Tour televised final table and still walk away empty handed, but that was what happened to three players on the final day of the World Poker Tour World Championship $100,000 Super High Roller event.

The high buy-in tournament attracted 21 players and so only the top three would walk away with prize money at Bellagio in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The tournament attracted some of the top poker players in the world so it came as no surprise that the final match that decided the title late tonight, after a long period of play to bust the $409,500 money bubble, came down to two of the best young players in the game - David Sands and Joseph Cheong.

The final match was a short one, which as you will read below was in stark contrast to the rest of the final table, and it was Sands who won his first WPT title after coming so close during Season X (runner-up finish at the L.A. Poker Classic). The win took Sands up to $5.5 million in career tournament earnings.

Final Table Results:

1: David Sands - $1,023,750
2: Joseph Cheong - $614,250
3: Daniel Perper - $409,500
4: James Courtney - $0
5: Steven Silverman - $0
6: Andrew Robl - $0
