Zamani, Winter, Qartomy & Jaffee Claim Wynn $10K Titles Over the Weekend

Wynn $10K High Roller Winners

Popular $10,000 High Roller tournaments were slated to return to ARIA Resort & Casino in early December, but after tournaments were suspended at the venue (the $10K High Rollers will be rescheduled in 2021), a competing room opted to step up and fill the void.

To cater to players who had traveled to Las Vegas, Wynn quickly put together what was originally a three-event $10K High Roller series, but an added tournament on Sunday made it four events. The series wound up catering to 196 combined entrants and awarded $1.96 million in prize money.

The series proved so successful that Wynn is going to add daily $10Ks Dec. 10-12 and 17-19 (Thursday, Friday & Saturday each week).

While he didn’t capture a title, Matthew Wantman proved to be a breakout player of the series after making the final table in the first three events. First, he finished fifth for $39,200 in the first high roller, and he followed it up with another fifth-place finish for $51,200 in the second one. For Event #3, he wound up finishing runner-up to Ray Qartomy, good for $135,000. All told, Wantman banked $225,400 in prize money.
