It would not be wrong to call Sam Greenwood the king of high rollers. After back to back wins at the WPT Amsterdam High Roller for €125,785 and the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Grand Final €51,000 Super High Roller for €1 million, Greenwood shipped the €100K Super High Roller at 2018 PokerStars and Monte-Carlo©Casino EPT too.

Greenwood topped the stack for €1,520,000. His biggest win so far that surpassed the $10 million milestone. It wasn’t an easy win, and therefore, sweeter. Few celebrated pros who were railed off, included Isaax Haxton, Christoph Vogelsang, Ole Schemion, and Justin Bonomo.

The Heads Up

The heads-up saw two aggressive players lock horns with less than 100 big blinds in total. It took 3 hours before Greenwood and Vogelsang battled to bring a nail-biting high roller to an end, eventually. At one point, Vogelsang took a lead by 4-1. However, tables turned.

A few rounds saw ups and downs in Sam Greenwood’s graph. The high roller admitted, “If the cards aren’t going your way [heads up], it can get very frustrating and it’s stressful.”

Though Greenwood doesn’t consider himself great at the heads up, with passing time he managed to pull the show. In the pre-flop, his king-seven succeeded in taking over ace-six. After a double again with aces over deuces, he took the lead. With less than 50 big blinds on the table, Greenwood’s king-jack rose above ace-five suited.

The champion was rejoicing but certainly has a knack for the WSOP Main Event. He said, “I can’t complain, everything’s great, but winning the Main Event would have been better.” The winning spree that Greenwood is on, it wouldn’t be surprising to ace that race as well.
