Kenney, Holz Join Former Champion Kempe in Being Chosen for 2018 Super High Roller Bowl

After missing out on being selected in the “blind draw” for the 2018 Super High Roller Bowl, former champion Rainer Kempe and high roller stalwarts Bryn Kenney and Fedor Holz have been selected to play in this year’s event. The “second round” selections by the host casino, ARIA Resort & Casino, and the broadcaster of the tournament, Poker Central (through its PokerGO streaming outlet), were announced on Thursday. Although it lacked the fanfare that came with the lottery draw of the “first 30,” it is arguable that these 15 players chosen are players that deserve to be in the field. The 15 players who have been added to the capped 48-player are (and in alphabetical order): Brandon Adams Dennis Blieden Antonio Esfandiari Seth Davies Antanas ‘Tony G’ Guoga Fedor Holz Matt Hyman Rainer Kempe Bryn Kenney Jason Koon Tom Marchese Bill Perkins Doug Polk Jake Schindler Dan Smith Perhaps because

Cary Katz Wins 2018 PCA $100K Super High Roller Event

When we were kids, my brother and I were huge Milwaukee Brewers fans (and still are). Baseball’s all-time stolen base leader, Rickey Henderson, was never a member of the Brewers, but my brother loved him nonetheless because they shared the same first name (though my sibling’s name doesn’t have the “e”). As such, I predict the child version of my bro would have just become a gigantic fan of last night’s winner of the 2018 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $ 100,000 Super High Roller Event, Cary Katz. Unfortunately for us, we are not related to the man, so there are no generous birthday gifts in our future. For his real relatives, though, they could be in for quite the boon after Katz’s nearly $ 1.5 million win. One thing that is nuts about Katz’s victory is that he did not even play on Day 1 of the tournament. As players were

2018 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure: Ivan Luca Leads Super High Roller Final Table

The final table of the 2018 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $ 100,000 Super High Roller Event was determined yesterday as the seven remaining players vie for the title on Monday. It is a tight race at the top with Ivan Luca holding the chip lead with 2.76 million chips, followed by Justin Bonomo with 2.695 million and Daniel Negreanu with 2.415 million. All seven players are guaranteed at least $ 248,720. Thus, Negreanu has already made up his tournament losses from last year; he recently posted on his blog that despite nearly $ 2.8 million in live tournament cashes, he lost $ 86,140 in 2017. His average buy-in was over $ 40,000, though, so Negreanu considered that net loss virtually “break even.” As one would expect in a Super High Roller tournament, the rest of the final table is also a “who’s who” of the tournament poker world. Bryn Kenney, who

2018 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure: Scott Seiver Biggest Gun in Super High Roller, Holds Lead After Day 1

The 2018 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is underway at the Atlantis Resort Spa on Paradise Island in the Bahamas and, with one event, it has captured the attention of the poker world. The $ 100,000 Super High Roller event has completed Day 1 as Scott Seiver, the 2013 champion of the event, holds the lead in his hunt for a second title. It seems that many had the $ 100,000 buy in (at the minimum…it is a rebuy event, after all) lying around to jump into the event when it started on Saturday afternoon. Such notables in the High Roller arena as Steffen Sontheimer, Koray Aldemir, Ben Tollerene and 2017 Poker Player of the Year Adrian Mateos (sorry, Bryn Kenney) were on the felt for the start of the tournament, with others drifting in after the start. Nick Petrangelo, Daniel Negreanu (utilizing a scooter due to an ACL injury – who

Dan Smith Defeats Daniel Negreanu in $100,000 Super High Roller at Five Diamond

In one of the final preliminary events (if you can call a tournament with a six-figure buy in a “preliminary”) before the start of the World Poker Tour Five Diamond World Poker Classic Main Event next week, Dan Smith vanquished fellow poker pro Daniel Negreanu to win the $ 100,000 Super High Roller on Friday night. While there has been plenty of action around the Bellagio leading up to the WPT Main Event, the $ 100,000 Super High Roller pulled plenty of eyes to its action. 39 entries would pony up the $ 100,000 entry fee to build a $ 3.9 million prize pool. Of that bounty, only six people would be walking away with any money, making the competition fierce. By the time Thursday night arrived, the money bubble was still intact as seven players battled it out for the right to get a return on their investment. Stephen
