The €100,000 Super High Roller event will return on April 23 during PokerStars European Poker Tour Grand Final in Monte Carlo. Yesterday it was announced that 20 players have pre-registered for the tournament so far, which means that at least a €2,000,000 prize pool will be up for grabs.
Some of the most interesting players who will take part are Viktor "Isildur1" Blom, Patrik Antonius, "ElkY", Sorel Mizzi, Tony G and Daniel Negreanu. Viktor Blom won the last Super High Roller for amazing $1,254,400! That event was played at the Atlantis Resort and Casino (during PCA) in January this year and saw a field of 30 players (2 players made a rebuy). It will be interesting to see if the upcoming Super High Roller will be as successful.
cool tourney, big names, although not very super high roller buy in i think- blom often looses or wins bigger lump of green paper in one session, same with antonius- so just a good tourney for the live coverage at least, the names in will make this a very entertaining tourney to watch
I am sure this event will be as successful as it was the last one. This already has 20 registrations, and there are still 3 weeks to go before the beginning of the action, so there’s more than time for wealthier players to apply for it. I even believe the 30 player field of last year can be passed in this year’s event.
