4-way deal in $109 Highroller

Yesterday the final day of the $109 Highroller was played! There were 34 players who qualified for the final battle, which could be followed via a livestream all evening! Would you like to see the footage again?

All players ITM, 4-way deal at the end

All players who started Day 2 were guaranteed the min-cash worth $188.40.Β After about 3 hours of play, we were ready for the final table. Here, Calvin Swanenberg in particular distinguished himself. He had accumulated almost 14 million chips by the time he reached the final 4 players.

After a few hands, the remaining 4 players decided to discuss a deal. In the end, this was done after (most likely) using an ICM calculator. This meant that the title went to chip leader Calvin Swanenberg!

πŸ‡³πŸ‡±Jacco Palte had already qualified for Day 2, but he strengthened his position by finishing the day with almost twice as many chips as he had on the previous starting day (578,858). This brings the total number of players for Day 2 to 34 players.
