Ilkin Garibli's Wins PCA High Roller

Friday, 16 January 2015

It's not often that you come back from a holiday with more money than you left with, let alone ending up over $1m to the good. Ilkin Garibli managed just that after taking down the $25k PCA High Roller.

It proved to be a very wise decision as the Azerbaijani amateur pocketed $1,105,040 after topping a high class field of 269 entrants.

After safely navigating his way through a final table that included Dan Hemiller, Faraz Jaka and Scott Seiver, the 26-year-old agreed a chop with American pro Joe Kuether. After splitting the cash, the pair played on for the SLYDE watch and bragging rights with Garibli eventually taking the lot.

1. Ilkin Garibli (Azerbaijan) $1,105,040*
2. Joe Kuether (United States) $1,050,000*
3. Oleksii Khoroshenin (Ukraine) $629,460
4. Jean-Pascal Savard (Canada) $508,080
5. Scott Seiver (United States) $398,340
6. Nick Petrangelo (United States) $301,500
7. Faraz Jaka (United States) $221,440
8. Dan Heimiller (United States) $162,700
