The ARIA and Poker Central have come together to announce the upcoming schedule for the $300,000 Super High Roller Bowl. Like last year, the event will be streamed via PokerGO the streaming platform service provided by Poker Central. Registration for the event beings on March 1st, with players who want to take part having to place a $30,000 deposit, that is non-refundable, to reserve their spot.
Sam Simmons, the VP of Content for Poker Central, commented on the upcoming event, calling it the ‘world championship of high stakes tournament poker’. According to Simmons, the event sold out in seven hours in 2017, so interested players need to have their deposits ready and register quickly.
In keeping with tradition, organizers of the event have blocked out a total of 18 seats within the 48 available for VIP guest entrants. In previous years, these seats were set aside for super high rollers of the non-professional variety. It seems that this year will be the same, with around 30 recognizable professional players at the felt alongside a few unfamiliar faces.
The prize pool should eclipse $14 million so it will not be surprising to see several poker pros we know and love registering early to take part. The Super High Roller Bowl will be a broadcast event as well, on top of streaming services. NBC Sports Network will be showing a series of episodes on the event.
The event is set to kick off on May 27th and continue until the 30th when the winner is named. Players will find the ARIA is full of poker action in May as the Super High Roller Bowl will take place right after the World Poker Tour Bobby Baldwin Classic as well as the World Poker Tour Tournament of Champions. The ARIA will also be hosting their traditional events as well within the mix of unique offerings.
