High Roller: Dominique Mosley Conquers Tough Final Table for Title

February 15-16, 2018

The WSOP Circuit Main Event headlined the series but the schedule had a big game on tap the day before. The $3,250 High Roller was the biggest buy-in tournament offered and it drew a field of talented players. The final table lineup was tough and local pro Dominique Mosley defeated fellow pro Matt Stout heads-up for the High Roller ring along with more than $75,000.

The tournament had a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool but the 74 entries pushed it up to $222,000. The tournament played down to the final table late on Day 1 with only eight of them set to make the money. Nine players were still around when they wrapped up in the early morning and returned for Day 2 on the money bubble.

Former WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open champ Brian Altman hit the rail early to put the last eight in the money with several players taking their turn atop the chip counts. Mike Dwyer took the lead when it was four-handed but it did not last long.

Mosley picked up a big double up through Dwyer to take the lead. Dwyer hit the payout desk in third place to set up the heads-up battle with Stout holding similar stacks.

The match for the win was a quick affair when Mosley wrapped up the title after both players were dealt big aces and Mosley’s held. Stout finished in the runner-up position for the second time this series and running well heading into the Main Event.

Mosley, a Pot Limit Omaha cash game player, pushed his live tournament career cash number over $500,000 with his second tournament victory when he took home $75,480 along with his shiny new WSOP Circuit ring.

Stout was ahead with his pair and our Event 1 winner couldn’t catch up on the KhJc5hQs2d board to exit in fourth place. He didn’t add another ring but the fourth place finish was good enough to push him back into the lead in the WSOP Casino Championship race over Bryce McVay.
