Barcelona has been the hotspot of poker for the last week or so. partypoker LIVE hosted three high roller events at their MILLIONS Grand Final Barcelona. Over the weekend, Belgian pro Davidi Kitai shipped the €25K High Roller for €700,000. Canada's Sam Greenwood won the €50K for a cool million. And yesterday, American pro Jake Schindler sniffed out Stevie Chidwick's bluff to win the €100K Super High Roller for a score worth €1,750,000. Schindler is now closing in on $18 million in career tournament earnings.

Jake S wins

Barcelona is lovely this time of year. The poker circus migrated to Spain for the latest stop on the partypoker LIVE circuit. The partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Grand Final Barcelona attracted the top players in Europe as well as a few stragglers from North America. But it was a young American pro who swooped in a walked away with a sick seven-figure score. Jake Schindler survived the shark-infested €100,000 Super High Roller and banked €1.75M (or nearly $2.2M USD) for a couple days of work.

The partypoker LIVE Grand Final Main Event is currently underway at the Grand Final in Barcelona. Other high roller affairs were hosted and we saw Sam Greenwood and Davidi Kitai walk away with noteworthy scores for binking the €50K and €25K respectively.

A total of 48 players took a shot at the €100K SHR. Only the top 6 places paid out. First place would win the lion's share worth €1.75M. The final six were Jake Schindler, Stevie Chidwick, Jason Koon, Jean-Noel Thorel, Bryn Kenney and Erik Seidel. Yeah, four Americans cashed in the SHR and Germans posted a donut. Ho hum, it would be the American with the German name who prevailed in Barcelona.

Erik Seidel cashed in two high rollers in Barcelona, but missed the winner's circle both times. Seidel took third place in the €25K and he min-cashed in the 100K SHR for €240K.

Schindler went into the final day of action with the chip lead. When it got heads-up with the infamous Stevie444, he held a slim chip lead. Schindler won the heads-up bout. On the final hand, Stevie444 tried to bluff at a pot with absolute air. With a potential flush on the board, Schindler held a Wheel straight with an Ace-blocker. Was his straight good enough? After tossing in a couple of time chips, Schindler made the call. He sniffed out the bluff. Chidwick lost the pot and settled on a runner-up finish. Chidwick won €1.1M.

Schindler banked €1.75M for first place. Schindler's biggest cash to date happened last year when he took second place at the Super High Roller Bowl for score worth $3.6M. Schindler is closing in on $17.8 million in career winnings. Not too shabby, eh?

In the 50K realm, Sam Greenwood prevailed and walked away with €1,000,000. Greenwood sent Sergio Adio packing in second place to win the high roller. Their heads-up match was worth 400K, but Adio could not stop Greenwood. It seemed like he was destined to win after he rallied from a short stack to stave off elimination. Greenwood previously took second place in a 50K in Barcelona against Fedor Holz, so this was a satisfying victory.

The final table included Finnish blast from the past Patrik Antonius, Keith Tilston, Jean-Noel Thorel, Joao Simao, and Matthias Eibinger.

Davidi Kitai is the Belgian GOAT. The Triple Crown winner shipped another tournament, but finally won his first high balla affair. This one was worth a €700K score after he faded a field of 90 hopefuls. Kitai passed $9 million in career earnings with this big score in Barcelona.

The €25K High Roller final table was no slouch with oodles of familair faces such as Steve O'Dwyer, Adrian Matoes, Manig Loeser, Ryann Reiss, Jake Schindler, and ZeeJustin. Kitai outlasted them all and defeated Jian Parado Dominguez heads-up for the title.
