Shawn Daniels Wins Venetian $10K High Roller Day After Finishing as Runner-Up


On Friday the 2021 Venetian DeepStack Championship Poker Series, which will host a pair of MSPT Main Events next week, ran their second of three High Roller tournaments to be held in May.

Following Ali Imsirovic’s victory over Shawn Daniels in High Roller Event #1: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em, a tournament that attracted 77 runners, High Roller Event #2: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em saw 65 entrants take to the felt. Daniels once again made a deep run, and he found redemption by taking down the tournament for $175,500. That brought his two-day winning total to $321,800.

The tournament, which offered up a $650,000 prize pool, was part of the PokerGO Tour with players earning points based on the amount they cash for. Check out the PokerGO Tour schedule here, as well as the current PokerGO Tour leaderboard here.

According to updates from the event, Daniels began heads-up play with a 5:1 chip lead over Sergi Reixach, who finished sixth in the first $10K High Roller. However, the Spaniard made a comeback and seized the chip lead at one point only to relinquish it back to Daniels.

In what would be the final hand of the tournament, Reixach got his short stack all in preflop holding queen-five offsuit against the king-eight of Daniels. The latter wound up improving to a pair of kings and sent Reixach packing in second place for $130,000.

Also making his second consecutive final table was Shannon Shorr, who finished fourth in Event #1 for $77,000 and followed it up with an eighth-place finish in Event #2 for $26,000.

A final high roller is coming this weekend. On Saturday, Event #3: $25,000 NLH High Roller will play out. PokerNews will publish a recap upon the tournament’s completion.
