NAPT Mohegan Sun High Roller Final Table Set
April 12, 2022
The second ever PokerStars North American Poker Tour High Roller Bounty Shootout event took place today at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut, and although there were not as many entrants as the first Venetian high roller event, the ones that did compete made for tough action and fascinating viewing.

35 players in total entered today’s $25,600 buy-in bounty shootout event, enough for 5 full tables of six and one slightly shorter table of 5.  Some of the recognizable pros sitting at those tables included Hoyt Corkins, Steve Sung, Daniel Negreanu, Greg Raymer, Brian Lemke and Barry Greenstein, each needing to beat their entire first tables in order to claim an initial $60,000 ($50,000 in the case of the short-handed table) and to win the chance to sit at tomorrow’s prestigious final.

None of the above listed pros proved successful in that endeavor, with each eventually forced to walk away and surrender the $5,000 bounty on their heads, however, given the elite nature of this kind of field, most of the six that will be playing are almost as well known as those that were forced to leave.  

The final table for the 2010 PokerStars NAPT Mohegan Sun High Roller includes:

Jason Mercier- who took out Ahn Van Nguyen, Matt Woodward and Elijah Berg to secure his seat and $75,000 in cash.

Sam Stein- responsible for the elimination of Greg Raymer, William Reynolds and “The Bear,” to come into the final with $75,000 as well.

Faraz Jaka- took out Negreanu, Joe Gibbons and Perry Horwich to earn his $75,000.

Matt Glantz- eliminated Pat Pezzin and Scott Seiver to enter with $70,000 in his pocket.

Shawn Buchanan- who ended the days of Marcello Delgrosso, Steve Sung, Scott Paston and Joe Cassidy, to secure the biggest payday so far in the event worth $80,000.

Luiz Vazquez- who successfully knocked out every single player at his five person table which included Peter Jetten, Greg Debora, Curt Kohlberg and Tom Marchese, to earn Vazquez $70,000 thus far.

With only six players now remaining and one of those guaranteed to earn a top, winner-take-all prize, worth $350,000, tomorrow’s final table action should be intense when it begins at noon EST.  To rail the action via the web check out the PokerStars blog, which is providing all the highlights as well as chip counts, photos and bounty reports.
