The high roller action continued at ARIA Resort & Casino over Easter week with Nick Petrangelo and Sean Perry both capturing victories in the $10,000 buy-in tournaments on Wednesday and Thursday.
Petrangelo managed to top the 44-entrant field and Brock Wilson heads-up to win the $126,980 first-place prize and see his lifetime tournament earnings surpass $17.6 million. Perry defeated a 53-entrant field and Ali Imsirovic heads-up, to win the $169,600 first-place prize.
On Friday, the buy-in would be raised to $25,000, and 31 entrants would create a prize pool of $775,000. The top five players finished in-the-money with Christopher Brewer, Nick Schulman, and Cary Katz hitting the rail before Event #2 heads-up opponents in Perry and Imsirovic would meet again. This time, however, it would be Imsirovic grabbing the win as he pocketed the $310,000 first-place prize.
