Molson secures High Roller success
Will Molson has won the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure High Roller event.
The Canadian pro has finished 2nd in the tournament on two previous occasions but managed to secure victory this time, winning $1,072,850 for his efforts.
A total of 151 players entered the $25,000 event, including World Series legend Erik Seidel, and Molson battled through to heads-up play despite being one of the shorter stacks at the final table, eventually defeating Leo Fernandez to take down the title.
Reacting to his win he said: “It feels amazing, what a relief. When I got heads up I tried not to think about it too much, but it was hard. I really put a lot of pressure on myself. I wanted to lose that second place tag.”
