Respected US poker pro Isaac Haxton has pushed his career live tourney earnings north of $23 million after winning the $3,672,000 main prize in the $300,000 buy-in Super High Roller playing in a field of 36 world renowned rivals.
Haxton held the chip lead going into the third and last day of the competition, chased closely by UK pro Steven Chidwick, who was ultimately eliminated at third for $1,512,000.
Chidwick’s departure started the heads up, with US pro-on-a-roll Alex Foxen holding the chip lead, but it was not for long; Haxton in a single hand took the chip lead back to claim a 2:1 chip advantage that he later extended to a 7 to 1 lead that he rode through to a main prize win, sending Foxen to the exit and a still impressive prize of $2,160,000.

Talal Shakerchi United Kingdom $1,188,000
Adrian Mateos Spain $972,000
Igor Kurganov Russia $756,000
Ali Imsirovi Bosnia and Herzegovina $540,000
