Marafioti is another player who has already made the money at this year's PCA - finishing 26th in the $1,500 NL Freezeout on Sunday for $3,570. However, that's peanuts compared to the guaranteed $66,885 he'll get for making the final of the High Roller event. Although best known as a high stakes online cash game pro, Marafioti is now getting great results in live events and has cashed in the last four out of five that he's played. Last summer, he came 12th for $ 172,120 in the WSOP $40k Anniversary event and in July was runner-up to Christian Harder at the $5k Bellagio Cup in Las Vegas for $165,985. His total live tournament winnings now top $600k. Marafioti is a SuperNova Elite and had so many Frequent Player Points he was recently able to trade them in for an Aston Martin. He almost got blinded out at the start of the High Roller event as he was still playing in the 5k event on the other side of the Imperial Ballroom.
