This weekend two amateur poker players, Jake Schindler and Bill Klein emerged victorious at the Las Vegas Aria Resort and Casino. Both Schindler and Klein won the high-roller poker tournament. The latter player took down a $25K prize pool on Friday, 7th May 2021, and the former shipped the same price value on Saturday, 8th May 2021.
But that wasn’t all for the day. Klein was also seen acing a game of golf at Las Vegas’ noted Shadow Creek golf park. During that game, the 73-year-old champion sank a hole-in-one, a rare and remarkable shot for many golfers.
After this adrenaline rush, Klein ventured off to the Strip for a few high-stakes poker games. The competition was tough, but Klein’s eyes were on the prize. Klein was competing for $324,000 against powerful competitors eyeing the same prize money.
The non-professional poker player washed out a battleground of thirty-six players, several of whom in that gambling area unit were among the most skilled players in the world.
The prize pool money of $900,000 was split amongst six players. Klein was awarded the biggest share out of the six and took home a whopping $324,000. In a heads-up match, Klein won against Seth Davies.
Other exemplary wins that took place at Aria this weekend were Ali Imsirovic taking a prize pool of $144,000 winning third place. Sean Winter recorded a $90,000 prize pool ranking at fourth place, and Jake Schindler was voted in for sixth place taking home a prize pool of $54,000.
An outstanding winner, Schindler revived his spot bagging prize pools in a buy an event drawing $310, 500 marking his spectacular poker tournament laurels.
In a points-themed high-roller poker touring record known as the 2021 PokerGO Tour, Klein has now earned 194 points for his achievements on Friday’s event at Aria. Whereas, Schindler has obtained 186 points for his wins toward the 2021 PokerGO Tour.
