First live tourney cash for PCA High Roller winner.

By RP, January 15, 2015

Azerbaijan live tourney newcomer Ilkin Garibli, who was cajoled into entering the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Festival’s High Roller event by a group of friends, walked away with the enviable prize of $1,105,040,  a SLYDE Steel and Rose Gold watch worth Euro 12,890 and his first PCA title.

Garibli favours cash games but went into the two-hour heads up battle against American Joe Kuether displaying none of his live tourney inexperience.

The pair agreed a two-way split Garibli $1 105 540 and Kuether $1 050 000 leaving the title and the SLYDE watch to play for.
