$25,000 PCA High Roller

A Champion Will Be Crowned in the $25,000 PCA High Roller

PCA Trophy

Heading into the final day of the 2019 PCA at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas, there is still plenty of dollar signs up for grabs in the $25,000 PCA High Roller. Just 12 players remain in the fight for the title and the winner will be walking away with nearly $900,000.

Thomas Muehloecker leads the field with 1,420,000 chips and is closely followed by his countryman Markus Durnegger with 1,385,000. The two players stole the show in the latter stages of Day 2 while sharing the same table, pulling away from the rest of the field. Muehloecker has been around the high roller circuit for many years now and has an impressive resume to show why, whereas Durnegger is trying to prove that he belongs with the big guys.

The field was littered with notable players to make up one of the strongest high rollers, so it is no wonder that many familiar faces still remain on Day 3. Sam Greenwood (880,000), Nick Petrangelo (530,000), Dominik Nitsche (475,000), Sean Winter (390,000), and Davidi Kitai (215,000) will all have their sights set on the first-place prize of $895,110. For those that bow out early, they will be guaranteed at least $65,440 which is nothing to shake a stick at.
