This game was incredible.
Only when you think to the fact that the entrance cost 250,000 dollars it seems like you're gonna be dizzy. This amount of money for a game is exorbitant and probably had multiple online satellites.
4 players have won impressive sums and they deserve to be congratulated for this.
I think this game was superb.

Lucky guy. Of course he worked for it hard but that winning hand is an absolute crusher in terms of available scenarios and tournament ending hands - he could not have it all a better way to be honest. Three million dollars could buy you a lot of things, wonder how much percentage he sold beforehand.

It must be a great feeling to be able to pay a quarter of million dollars just to enter a tournament. These tournaments are getting more and more popular and it really does fetch the very best poker players in the world out to play

So we have high roller tournaments and super high roller ones? Smile
That buy in is not easy to push.
The field of course wast huge with only 34 players in, but with only four places
getting paid, you would need to do one of your best games ever and being very lucky also.
This prize was worth it Smile

Very best or the ones with the very deepest wallet? There is need to be some distinction between the two.

To me personally it is very bad structure of tournament, you pau very very big buyin of 250000 dollars and only four people get something back, of course not thousand of olayers, only 34, but they are all good players and not easy to be in top 4. I think better play 25 tournament of 10000 buyin

Yes the field was a small one indeed, but even if you had the money, would you go for it?
More chances to win, since there were only 34 players in but still.
With only four paying positions i dont think i would be interested playing this tournament.
So much more you could have done with all that money Smile

The betting system is a disastrous one, this is true, but they could have paid 10 places.
9 players with 750 k and for the winner 750 k plus rest of the money of these awards.
Most poker players play for money and for this kind of tournament with huge buy-in, separate rules need to be made.
Maybe in the future they will change something.

Massive well done to Steffen Sontheimer on winning the $250,000 buy-in Super High Roller Championship and scooping $3.685 million! There weren't many entrants in the event. Will I ever get a chance to play such a prestigious event in my life? Probably not.
