Will Molson has wrenched a monkey off his back and beaten it to death. OK, not literally, but that would be a much more interesting story.

Now he has done it. A staggering third final table in a row for the $25,000 High Roller event, this time for a score of $1,072,850 which gives Molson over $1.65m in tournament winnings from this event alone. He defeated Argentine PokerStars Pro Leo Fernandez heads-up after holding up with A-5 versus J-2, after defeating a final table that included Erik Seidel and Tom Marchese.
