The massive Super High Roller Bowl is underway with three champions crowned and another three huge events set to crown their champions on May 25.
Jans Arends, Chris Hunichen, and Sergi Reixach won the first trio of events, let’s see how they all went down.
SHRB #01 – High Roller: $500K Gtd
The $10,300 buy-in for the SHRB opening event didn’t deter 76 players jumping in. Those 76 entrants created a $760,000 prize pool that was shared among the top 11 finishers.
Russia sensation Artur Martirosian burst the money bubble, pacing the way for Daniel Dvoress, Samuel Vousden, and Michael Addamo to collect $22,800.
Christopher Fraser was the first bustee of the final table. Fraser gained some company on the sidelines in the shape of Juan Pardo, the legendary Niklas Astedt, and Sergi Reixach.
Jake Schindler loves playing the SHRB in a live setting. He’s now a fan of the online edition having finished fourth here for $68,400.
The first six-figure prize is now nestled in the account of Alex Foxen. His third-place exit saw a $102,600 addition to his bankroll.
Foxen’s exit left Ben Heath and Jans Arends heads-up for the title. Heath, won a $50,000 buy-in event at the 2019 WSOP, had to make do with second-place here, which weighed in at $148,200. Arends, known as “Graftekkel”, won the $216,600 top prize.
|2||Ben Heath||United Kingdom||$148,200|
|5||Sergi Reixach||United Kingdom||$53,200|
|7||Juan Pardo||United Kingdom||$34,200|
|8||Christopher Fraser||United Kingdom||$26,600|
SHRB #02 – Super High Roller: $1M Gtd
Event number two cost a colossal $25,500 to enter yet 54 players still bought. These entrants created a prize pool that smashed the $1 million guarantee by $350,000 but only the top seven finishers received a slice of it.
Steve O’Dwyer earned the unwanted title of bubble boy. The difference between not cashing and min-cashing was an eye-watering $57,375. That’s the sum Timothy Adams got his hands on when he fell in seventh.
Daniel Dvoress took down one of these events in The Bahamas, but could only muster sixth-place here. Costa Rica-based pro Rob Lipkin busted in fifth for $87,750 with UK-based Spaniard Vicent Ramon banking $131,625 for his fourth-place exit.
Ireland’s Mark Davis has cashed in several high rollers recently and added a third-place finish in this $25,500 event to his ever-improving poker CV. Third-place here weighed in at a cool $205,875.
Swedish legend Viktor Blom crashed out in second place after a one-on-one battle with Chris Hunichen. Hunichen collected the gargantuan $479,250 top prize, leaving Blom to console himself with $320,625.
|1||Chris Hunichen||Costa Rica||$479,250|
|4||Vicent Ramon||United Kingdom||$131,625|
|5||Rob Lipkin||Costa Rica||$87,750|
SHRB #03 – High Roller: $500K Gtd
Sergi Reixach locked up the third event’s top prize, namely $191,750, after triumphing over 58-opponents.
As you’d expect from a tournament of this magnitude, the final table was as stacked as they come.
Former MILLIONS Online champion Jon Van Fleet was the first casualty of the star-studded final table. Michael Addamo, John O’Shea and Juan Pardo all busted to leave the remaining players with a little more elbow room.
Vicent Ramon secured his second cash in three events with a fourth place finish, before Hungarian’s finest, Andras Nemeth, fell by the wayside in third-place, a finish worth $87,025.
Heads-up could have gone either way as both Reixach and Mike Watson are phenomenal players. Reixach came out of the heads-up encounter unscathed and with $191,750 reasons to be happy. Watson walked away with a runner-up finish and another $129,800 in his arsenal.
|1||Sergi Reixach||United Kingdom||$191,750|
|4||Vicent Ramon||United Kingdom||$54,575|
|5||Juan Pardo||United Kingdom||$42,775|
|7||Michael Addamo||United Kingdom||$28,025|
|8||Jon Van Fleet||Canada||$22,125|
Three More Events Conclude on May 25
A trio of SHRB events crown their champions on May 25; two $10,300 buy-ins and a $25,500 buy-in. All three tournaments are played on six-handed tables and all three are set to pay out ridiculous sums of money.
Alex Foxen leads the final 16 players back into battle from 20:00 CET on the SHRB #04 – High Roller: $500K Gtd 6-Max. Some 106 players started this event, who will win the $293,090 top prize?
The biggest score of the series so far will pay out in the SHRB #05 – Super High Roller: $1M Gtd. Some 71 players bought in for $25,500 and smashed the $1 million guarantee by $775,000. Only 10 of those players remain, including Team partypoker’s Mikita Badziakouski who returns sixth in chips.
Daniel Dvoress is the chip leader and has almost twice as many chips as anyone else. He’s in pole position for the $613,986 top prize.
Badziakouski is also in the final 13 of the SHRB #06 – High Roller: $500K Gtd but he’s got plenty of work to do because his 356,388 chips are only enough for 12th place at the restart. Teammate Joni Jouhkimainen is in slightly better shape, his 844,870 chips placing him seventh at the restart.
Kahle Burns is the man to catch going into the final day. Will he walk away with $259,628 or will someone from the chasing pack overtake him?
