Nick Maimone's online prowess is legendary. Playing under the moniker “FU_15”, Maimone was tearing up the virtual tables prior to Black Friday. Like many online pros in the wake of Black Friday, Maimone became an exile and played whenever and wherever he could.
When it got heads up between Nick Maimone and Sean Winter, the two had a lengthy, but constructive deal discussion. They two agreed on the terms with Winter locking up $914,580 and Maimone $966,480 (leaving $30K on the table but also playing out for the coveted trophy). Heads-up went quick and when it was all over, Maimone walked away as the newest PCA 24K High Roller champ.
Going into Day 3 of the High Roller, only 9 players remained. 2015 November Niner Josh Beckley was the chip leader at the end of Day 2, but he bowed out in fourth place. Maimone began Day 3 as 4/9 in chips.
