Jake Schindler Wins $25k PCA 2014 High Roller: Selbst Comes in 3rd

American pro Jake Schindler has won the $25k PCA High Roller for $1,192,624 after cutting a heads-up deal with 2012 world champion Greg Merson. Merson received $948,996 for his runner-up finish. As well as the huge cash prize, Schindler also received a prestigious trophy and Steel and Rose Gold watch worth €12,800, courtesy of SLYDE, the Official Watch Sponsor of PCA 2014.

Team Poker Stars Pro Vanessa Selbst was thwarted in her bid to win back-to-back PCA High Rollers when she was eliminated by Schindler in third place for $607,580. However tonight's result leapfrogs her name two spots up the all-time money list, above PCA 2013 Super High Roller champion Scott Seiver and 2009 world champion and fellow Team Pro Joe Cada.

1. Jake Schindler, USA, $1,192,624

2. Greg Merson, USA, $948,996

3. Vanessa Selbst, USA, Team PokerStars Pro, $607,580

4. Mustapha Kanit, Italy, $492,600

5. Robert Mizrachi, USA, $389,720

6. Aleksandr Denisov, Russia, $295,920

7. Ole Schemion, Germany, $216,040

8. Joao Viera, Portugal, $157,940

The record-breaking three-day event, which ended late on Monday night, attracted 198 entries and 49 re-entries making a total 247 entries to create a $6,051,500 prize pool. 31 players were paid with 14 turning up for the final day including Team PokerStars Pro and world #1 Daniel Negreanu (14th for $89,560) and Marvin Rettenmaier (final table bubble for $130,720). Ole Schemion finished seventh for $216,040 and, like Selbst, has managed to cash in all three PCA majors: the Main Event, the Super High Roller and now the High Roller.

Selbst's total haul for PCA 2014 was $1,400,220, taking her lifetime tournament winnings to over $9 million. She got $760,640 for her third place finish in the Suepr High Roller at the start of the PCA festival and $32,000 for 42nd in the Main Event. Schemion has netted a total of $510,720.

The event was up on last year's 204 entries. Selbst took that one down for $1,424,420 – a victory that made her the highest-earning female poker player of all time.
