WPT Korea: Alex Lee wins the High Roller, Jason Lo takes down the bounty event

High Roller: Alex Lee claims the title, Terry Fan runner up

High Roller events rarely attract large fields, but they do have a habit of bringing the best players to the table. This KRW6,600,000 buy in event was attended by many talented pros including Ourgame Sponsored Player Raymond Wu, Terry Fan, the Singaporean Alex Lee, PKC president Winfred Yu, PKC Team Pro Juicy Li and China’s Dong Guo.The field size reached a final tally of 11 creating a prize pool of KRW64,020,000 ($54,620).

Terry Fan proved to be the star attraction once the tournament reached the final table stage, as the Taiwanese pro put himself well in contention for the title. Ultimately though, he came up just short, when he was defeated heads up by Alex Lee. The two players did make a deal for the money, with Fan taking home KRW28,000,000 (USD$23,888) and Lee KRW36,020,000(USD$30,730.)
