(pokernews.com)- Mian Wei has won the 2015 World Poker Tour UK High Roller event, a title that came with a coveted winner’s trophy and £100,000 in cash.
Wei was one of 48 players to exchange £5,000+£250 for 50,000 tournament chips and the chance to become a WPT champion. Day 1 ended with 29 entrants, but this figure increased dramatically thanks to the WPT allowing players to buy in on Day 2 with a 50-big blind stack.
Some of those who took advantage of the late registration period included Waheed Ashraf, James Akenhead, Matas Cimbolas, Nick Hicks, Simon Higgins, Chris Sly, Martyn Frey, and Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi. Of that talented bunch of players, only Mizrachi walked away with some prize money to show for their effort.
