Silverman Looking for More High Roller Success
We happened upon the action with 30,000 or so already in the pot and a board reading . Philipp Gruissem had checked from the big blind and Steven Silverman, who won the inaugural World Poker Tour Alpha8 event $100,000 event at the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida just a few days ago and subsequently passed Paul Volpe on the 2013 Global Poker Index Player of the Year leader board, bet 22,500 from the button.
Gruissem thought for well over a minute before counting out some chips and dropping in a call, which prompted Silverman to roll over the for a wheel. Gruissem chucked his cards to the muck unseen and
Silverman collected the pot.
You may also remember Silverman as the winner of last year's €25,000 High Roller at the 2013 PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino European Poker Tour Grand Final.
Before the next hand was dealt, online star Ignat "0Human0" Liviu was picked up from the big blind and moved to a new table.
