Bill Perkins, the founder of Skylar Capital Management LP, knocked out hedge-fund manager David Einhorn from a $111,111 buy-in charity tournament at the World Series of Poker with a pair of aces.
Perkins ranked 7th after day two of playing the 'One Drop High Roller' at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
The prize pool stood at more than $4.8 million and began with 166 entrants. Martin Jacobson, a 25-year-old poker professional from Stockholm, takes the top spot with 3.255 million chips, with poker pro Connor Drinan up next with 3.25 million and Perkins, 44, was 7th with 2.75 million.
The third day was not enough to end the tournament so the four top players returned to the 'One Drop High Rollers' event on Saturday to finish things up. The final four on Saturday included Bill Perkins (14.7 million), Anthony Gregg (13.9 million), Chris Klodnicki (12 million) and Antonio Esfandiari (9.2 million). They guys were guaranteed at minimum of $1,433,438 just for coming back on Saturday but they held out for the top prize of $4.8 million.
In the end Anthony Gregg was crowned champion of the 'One Drop High Rollers' event. Congrats to a worthy winner!
