Seven players remain in Event #6: $50,000 No-Limit Hold’em from the 2022 Super High Roller Series Europe festival, and it’s a familiar face in Timothy Adams leading the way into Day 2. Adams is a two-time Super High Roller Bowl title holder, winning back-to-back SHRB events in Australia and Russia in 2020, and now eyes even more high roller success as he’s in pole position for the Event #6 title.
Event #6 at Super High Roller Series Europe has $731,000 up for grabs for the winner, and Adams will have to battle with a tough group of competitors to get first place. Sam Greenwood is second in chips, Jason Koon is third in chips, Artur Martirosyan is fourth in chips, Daniel Dvoress is fifth in chips, Viacheslav Buldygin in sixth in chips, and Tom Vogelsang is seventh in chips.
Adams secured the chip lead by knocking out Cary Katz on the money bubble to end Day 1. Katz moved all in with pocket eights and ran into Adams’ pocket queens. Katz was able to take the lead when he flopped a full house on the king-king-eight flop but a queen hit the turn and did him in.
All seven players remaining are in the money and guaranteed $86,000 in prize money.
Timothy Adams is having a quiet yet powerful year, already having won two events for a combined $1,125,811 despite not playing as full of a schedule as he once did. Adams won the €50,000 Super High Roller at EPT Prague and a $25,000 NL Hold’em Turbo at Super High Roller Series Europe.
Sam Greenwood finished fourth and eighth in events at Triton Poker Cyprus and will be looking to close this one out for what would be his first live tournament victory since December 2019.
Jason Koon is third in chips entering Day 2 and second on the Super High Roller Series leaderboard with 854 points. Although it will be hard for anyone, including Koon, to catch Phil Ivey and his 1,725 points, Koon could put another dent in Ivey’s lead by moving up the leaderboard in Event #6. Koon is making his sixth cash of the Triton Poker Cyprus and Super High Roller Series Europe festivals, with three third-place finishes in a row.
Tom Vogelsang is currently eighth on the series leaderboard after winning Event #1 of Super High Roller Series Europe and cashing in another tournament here in North Cyprus.
The final seven players will be back in action at the Merit Royal Hotel Casino & Spa in North Cyprus on Wednesday, April 13, for play to begin at 1 p.m. local time. Viewers from around the world can tune in to the PokerGO YouTube channel at 7 a.m. ET (4 a.m. PT) to watch this one play to a winner.
