    Philipp Gruissem Wins 2013 WSOP Asia-Pacific $50,000 High Roller

    Philipp Gruissem Wins 2013 WSOP Asia-Pacific $50,000 High Roller for AUD$825,000

    He's done it again.

    German pro Philipp Gruissem added another massive high roller score to his exceptional r?sum? on Sunday, winning the World Series of Asia-Pacific $50,000 Re-Entry High Roller for AUD$825,000. Gruissem bested a tough field of 44 total entries and capped it off with a come-from-behind performance against Joseph Cheong during heads-up play.

    While the tournament didn't qualify as a bracelet event, Gruissem was all smiles after his victory. It marked his second six-figure score at the Crown in 2013 alone. Earlier this year, he took second in the Aussie Millions $25,000 Challenge for AUD$187,000. He's also made high roller final tables at the Caribbean Adventure, World Series of Europe, EPT London and EPT Monte Carlo over the past two years.

    Gruissem busted early on Day 1 of this event but decided to re-enter, a decision that paid off handsomely. The German's total live tournament winnings now exceed $4.8 million, almost all of which can be traced to events with buy-ins of $25,000 or higher.

    Here's a look at the results from Sunday's final table:

    WSOP APAC $50,000 High Roller Results
    Place Player Prize (AUD)
    1 Philipp Gruissem $825,000
    2 Joseph Cheong $511,000
    3 Paul Phua $325,000
    4 Lo Shing Fung $225,000
    5 Elton Tsang $155,000
    6 Tom Hall $115,000

    Since the USA started televising the WSOP here in the states. There's been a WSOP popping up all across the world. The game has become very popular.

    That's the way it should be. Whether poker grows here some more, poker will continue to grow worldwide regardless.
