Dan Shak, one of the most successful poker players in Super High Roller events, also decided to join the party here in London. The huge New York Knicks fan came to the tournament room armed with his laptop, iPad and probably multiple cell phones as he's always doing business both on and off the table during these events.
Shak had his first Super High Roller result in the 2009 A$100,000 Challenge during the Aussie Million when he finished fourth for A$200,000. A year later Shak won the event he cashed in the year prior followed by a runner-up finish in the 2012 Super High Roller at the PCA for $846,700.
This is not all because 2013 has been extraordinary so far as well. Shak finished fourth in the Aussie Millions Main Event and Super High Roller for a combined A$637,000, won the $125,000 Premier League in March and also managed to cash the $111,111 One Drop event this summer in Las Vegas.
This week Shak (74th - $5,560,390) will try to add more to his impressive list of results as he's closing in on Scott Clements, Mike Sexton and Martin Staszko on the all-time money list.
