Nick “caecilius” Petrangelo emerged victorious from the $2,100 Sunday High Roller at PokerStars to collect $38,381. Pretrangelo has been in Las Vegas for the 2019 World Series of Poker (WSOP) but has only cashed once. That cash, however, was worth a cool $335,181, his reward for a fifth-place finish in the $50,000 High Roller.

Petrangelo found himself heads-up against Cyprus’ “MITS 304” and it was a one-on-one battle he came out of unscathed, resigning the runner-up to a $30,105 consolation prize.

The final table was a star-studded affair. Ninth place went to Alexandro “mexican222” Kolonias before Brazil’s Lincon “Lincownz” de Olivieira with Arturs “ARTSchGamble” Scerbaks of Germany falling in seventh place for $8,939, the last player not to bank five figures.

Sinortas” busted in sixth place for $11,396 and was joined on the rail by Jens “Graftekkel” Arends, David “MoneyBausss” Laka, and then by Finland’s “elmerixx” who was the penultimate bust out.

The Brazilian gained some company on the sidelines when Dominik “Bounatirou” Nitsche busted in fourth place for $8,941 with Poland’s “Sphinx87” running out of steam in third place for $11,661.

Heads up saw Muehloecker and Sebastian “p0cket00” Sikorski fight it out of the title and the lion’s share of the prize pool. Muehloecker came out on top to bank the $19,837 first place prize with Canada’s Sikorski walking away with $15,210.
