The ARIA Resort & Casino hosted three $10,000 buy-in High Roller tournaments over the weekend with Dan Smith, Cary Katz, and Christopher Brewer all collecting victories.
The High Rollers moved to the Wynn Las Vegas in late 2020, and now they have returned to ARIA Resort & Casino. On Thursday, a total of 34 entrants created a prize pool of $340,000 that paid the top five finishers. Dan Smith defeated Alex Foxen heads-up, while Ali Imsirovic, Sean Winter, and Jake Daniels all finished in-the-money. With this win, Smith now sees his lifetime tournament earnings eclipse the $36.8 million mark.
