These players put down the nonrefundable $30,000 deposit toward the $300,000 buy-in event at ARIA Las Vegas Hotel & Casino in Nevada.

  • Adrian Mateos

  • Brian Rast
  • Justin Bonomo
  • David Peters

The Super High Roller Bowl runs May 27 through May 30, with livestreaming by PokerGO and programming on NBC Sports Network. The Super High Roller Bowl coverage will play in episodes on the network throughout 2018.

Change of scenery

Poker Central teamed up with Macau Billionaire Poker to expand overseas leading into the release of the Super High Roller Bowl schedule in the United States.

Justin Bonomo won the 49-player capped Super High Roller Bowl China March 22 for $4.8 million. There were 75 entries, as well as over $18 million in the total prize pool.

The others in the final table lineup include:

  • Patrik Antonius
  • Rainer Kempe

  • Bryn Kenney

This opportunity gave Bonomo his best live cash. This guaranteed $100 million HKD tournament was held at Babylon Casino in Macau, China.
