Santi Jiang Wins 2021 Super High Roller Bowl Europe $50,000 Short Deck Poker Event For $756,000

This Has Jiang's Third Final-Table Finish of the Series


Santi Jiang has had quite the run so far at the 2021 Super High Roller Bowl Europe. He has made the final table in three of the first five events, accumulating $951,750 in earnings along the way. The largest chunk of that money came from his most recent deep run, which saw him emerge victorious from a field of 42 total entries in the SHRB Europe $50,000 buy-in short deck event with $756,000 as the winner.

All three of Jiang’s scores at the SHRB Europe have come in short deck tournaments. He started out by finishing sixth in the kickoff event of the series, a $25,000 buy-in short deck tournament. He earned $72,000 in that event, and then two days later added another $123,750 for a fourth-place showing in another $25,000 buy-in short deck tournament.

In addition to all the prize money Jiang has accrued this week, he has also secured a bounty of rankings points with his short deck success. Prior to this series, Jiang had no 2021 live tournament cashes under his belt. So far this week he has accumulated 860 Card Player Player of the Year points, which is enough to move him into 170th place in the 2021 POY race standings sponsored by Global Poker. He also earned 510 PokerGO Tour rankings points with this victory. With 571 total points, Jiang has moved into 21st place.

Seth Davies earned $504,000 and 425 POY points as the runner-up. He now sits in 30th place in the overall standings. The 302 PokerGO Tour points he was awarded for his latest deep run saw him climb into 11th place in that points race. This was his eighth qualifying cash on the tour.

Like Davies, sixth-place finisher Chris Brewer also made moves in both the POY race and on the PokerGO Tour standings as a result of this event. He earned $105,000 and 170 points for his 14th POY-qualified final table of the year. The 63 POkerGO Tour points helped him maintain his hold on the sixth-place spot on that leaderboard.

Here is a look at the payouts and rankings points awarded at the final table:
