It was Santi Jiang’s third final table of the series and it brought the Spanish pro his first Super High Roller Bowl victory, a $756,000 scoop of the $50k buy-in Short deck, event 5 on the schedule.

Despite the hefty buy-in, there were 22-rebuys from the 20 unique players who fancied their chances at the 36-card variant of the game, the 2s through 5s removed from the deck.

The half-dozen who made it to the end of day 1 with a stack had at least doubled their buy-in, presuming they hadn’t been among those firing more than one bullet of course.

Chris Brewer was there yet again, showing his Short deck skills with a 5th and a 2nd to his name this week already, but he’d have to settle for 6th spot this time and a $105k cash.

The Malaysian duo of Ivan Leow and Paul Phua took the next two paid spots respectively, the latter almost immediately joining the livestreamed highstakes cash game with casino moguls Rob Yong and Leon Tsoukernik, along with event 3 Short Deck victor, Tony G.

Down to just three now and for Russian pro Timofey Kuznetsov it would be a third-place finish, cashing for $336,000 and leaving the heads-up battle between Jiang and Seth Davies.

Davies had cashed in the two on-Short deck events that the Merit Royal Hotel & Casino, in Kyrenia, Cyprus had hosted so far, but he couldn’t add a win as Santi Jiang stole the show and the $756,000 top prize, Davies’ taking $504,000 as runner-up.
