Super Salter's Eureka High Roller Win

Saturday, 13 December 2014

Jack Salter currently sit atop the Bluff European Rankings but he could face competition from the family following little brother Louis' exploits in Prague.

Salter junior topped a high-class 621-runner field in the €2,000 Eureka Poker Tour High Roller to pocket a first prize of over €124k.

The last seven agreed an ICM based deal before playing on for the title, the trophy and some impressive bragging rights. That final table a stellar one and included Eugene Katchalov, Benjamin Pollak, Ari Engel and Welshman Owain Carey. None could match Salter though who defeated no less a figure than Dan Shak to the title.

The Prague triumph caps whats been a hugely impressive 2014 for Salter. The 24-year-old has picked up big scores throughout the year including a big side event win at the Master Classics of Poker in Amsterdam a runner-up finish in the Asian Championship of Poker and final table appearances at the WPT National event in Northern Cyprus and in the Aussie Millions.

Older brother Jack hasn't stayed completely out of the spotlight in the Czech capital. The 27-year-old pocketed €4380 after taking down the first ever EPT €500 Full Tilt Flipout tourney
