David Yan emerged victorious at the EPT Malta €25,750 High Roller, beating a strong field of 46 players to walk home with €465,800.

Commenting on the win, the New Zealand poker pro said:

“I’m pretty happy with it. It’s tough to explain, but it feels pretty nice. It’s pretty cool.”

The event, held at the Portomaso Casino, had two noted players in Adrian Mateos (9th), and Davidi Kitai (7th) just missing out on the final table.

Six players however made it to the final table and after a series of eliminations, Yan and Ramin Hajiyev were left to fight it out for the coveted title.

The heads up battle didn't last too long as Hajiyev was brushed aside by Yan in no time.

Ramin (9h-6d) moved all-in on a Jh-10d-5h-7d-Qh board. Yan (Qc-10c) made the call to seal the deal. Hajiyev took home a cool €334,400, while Yan was crowned 2016 EPT Malta High Roller champion.

This win helped Yan take his live career earnings to over $3 million.

1: David Yan (NZ) €465,800
