Cary Katz, who considers himself a recreational player but most likely plays like a poker pro, won the first major tournament of 2018 earlier today when he outlasted a number of exceptional players to win the $100,000 Super High Roller event at the Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure.
The final table of the event was absolutely loaded with amateur poker player, as Cary Katz, Canadian superstar Daniel Negreanu, Justin Bonomo, former PCA Super High Roller champion Bryn Kenney, Isaac Haxton, Ivan Luca and Sam Greenwood all made it through to the final day of play.
Katz was the latecomers to the Super High Roller party, as he joined the event before the start of Day 2 and spent much of the final table as the short stack among the final seven players.
Here is how the tournament ended up finishing out:
