Will Molson Wins PCA High RollerBefore I get into the specifics of the story I have to admit that Canadian Will Molson has the greatest name/country combination in poker! Molson took down the PCA High-Roller poker tournament yesterday after a grueling three days of poker that saw the young pro weave his way through one of the toughest fields in poker history.

With a huge field of 158 players, first-place prize-money exceeded $1 million, making this the largest High-Roller tournament in poker history. Molson is no stranger to high-roller tournaments, and no stranger to having success in said tournaments: In 2009 Molson finished 2nd in this same tournament to Bertrand “ElkY” Grosspellier; in 2010 Molson once again was the bridesmaid in the PCA High-Roller tournament, this time finishing 2nd to William Reynolds; and now in 2011 Molson was able to better his previous placing by one spot and capture the crown.

Here is a look at the Top 10 finishers in the 2011 PCA $25k High-Roller tournament:

1.     1: William Molson –$1,072,850

2.     2: Leo Fernandez — $554,9253

3.     Max Lykov  – $369,490

4.     4: Erik Seidel — $295,960

5.     5: Govert Metaal — $240,470

6.     6: David “Bakes” Baker — $203,475

7.     7: Matt Marafioti — $166,480

8.     8: Jason Mercier — $129,480

9.     9: Shander de Vries — $110,985

10.  10: Brandon Stevens –$110,985

In addition to his PCA success Molson also has two other High-Roller final tables and cashes under his belt: One at the 2010 LA Poker Classic and one at the EPT London.
