Elio Fox bagged his second Super High Roller win at the host’s venue Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood – he won his first one last year in August 2018. This basically means Fox won back-to-back and defended his title.

The 33-year-old high-stakes pro emerged victorious amongst a field of 20 high-roller experts in a tournament that featured a guaranteed prize pool worth $1 million, with the top four players set to receive cash prizes.

For this event, Elio Fox took home the lion’s share worth $440,000 for outlasting everyone on the field. His current total live earnings at this point is at $8,115,331, according to the Hendonmob. The American poker pro’s best live cash so far came from the 2011 WSOP Europe Main Event, where he won € 1,400,000 ($ 1,870,208).

It was like déjà vu for Bosnian native Ali Imsirovic who finished 4th place for $120,000 – he actually got the same spot last year! Third place went to Alex Foxen for $180,000, whereas Sam Soverel became the runner-up for this event, taking home $260,000.

Fox said after he won, “It feels great. It’s always wonderful to start out a trip doing well – makes it easier the rest of the way. It was a really tough tournament, and I love playing with the group of guys that was here. I play with them a lot, and I’m really happy to have won.”
