£50,000 Super High Roller

Seat 2: Martin Finger, Germany (4,740,000)

Martin Finger

Very few players have had as much success as Germany’s Martin Finger in the last three years. It all started in 2011 when he amassed $1,037,917 in tournament winnings, which included a win in the EPT8 Prague Main Event for $964,023 – his largest career score to date. He also finished runner-up in a €1,000 No Limit Hold’em side event at that year’s EPT Barcelona for $60,508.

In 2012 he added $326,862 to his lifetime total by finishing fourth in the World Poker Tour Prague €10,000 High Roller for $65,501 and 14th in the EPT Grand Final €25,000 8 Max High Roller for $79,215.

Finger has already amassed $1,030,630 this year, and of course he’ll add to that significantly here today as his position as chip leader has him primed to make a run at the top prize. Finger’s superb year began back in January when he finished runner-up in the 2013 Aussie Millions Poker Championships $1,100 NLHE Event for $168,912, and then he followed that up with a great summer at the World Series of Poker. It was there that he took 14th in the $111,111 One Drop High Roller for $251,549 and won his first gold bracelet in Event #21 $3,000 NLHE Six-Handed for $506,764.

Finger currently sits #51 on the Global Poker Index 300, but he’ll be jumping a few spots no matter where he finishes today.
