For the third time in three years, Will Molson ended up playing heads-up for the title of PokerStars Caribbean Adventure High Roller Champion, but unlike the past two years, this time Molson sealed the deal, taking down the tournament and collecting $1,072,850.
To cash 3 straight years would be quite a feat in itself, but for Molson to finish 2nd, 2nd and 1st in three consecutive years is borderline amazing. Molson’s road to the title wasn’t an easy one, either. The final 12 consisted of many big names, such as Matt Affleck, Tom Marchese, who was the CardPlayer player of the year, and PokerStars Pro Jason Mercier,
Molson took a 3:1 chip lead into heads up play versus PokerStars Pro Leo Fernandez and never looked back. On the final hand, Fernandez shoved all in with J2 and was called by Molson’s A5. A 5 on the flop was plenty for Molson, as he finally broke his curse of 2nd place finishes and took down the tournament.
