PokerGO is the home of the 2017 Super High Roller Bowl and with this year’s event not beginning until Sunday, that gives you a few days to catch up on the last two years of action. Both the 2015 and 2016 events are available on-demand and ready to be binge-watched exclusively on PokerGO. First up, the inaugural $500,000 buy-in Super High Roller Bowl.
#5. Daniel Negreanu and Tom Marchese play their own game of chicken with nearly the exact same hand. Both players have variants of jack-ten and flop open-ended straight draws but on the turn, Negreanu bets and Marchese puts him to the test with a raise. Negreanu can’t continue with jack-high and Marchese wins battle and the war, as he ended up finishing 6th for a $1,075,000 score.
#4. Scott Sevier and Brian Rast tangle a few times in our Top 5 video but their first encounter comes before they are heads up for the title. Seiver gets all-in with pocket eights and needs to improve to stay alive against Rast’s pocket kings. He does immediately, flopping a set of eights to score a massive double that vaults him to the top of the leaderboard.
#3. Brian Rast couldn’t win with pocket kings and either can David Peters. Peters held king-king against Connor Drinan’s ace-ten and more or less flopped the short stack dead at the final table. Until the turn and river spit out non-club tens to give Drinan trips and keep him alive, while Peters fell in 5th place.
#2. Big pocket pairs were no good at the 2015 final table. Kings went down twice and Connor Drinan’s queens were next to fall, as Brian Rast turned Drinan’s stomach with a set of eights. There was no justice for the player that battled much of Day 2 and the final table with a short stack, unless you count a $3,225,000 3rd place result as justice.
#1. After clashing earlier, Scott Seiver and Brian Rast came together again and this time it was for the Super High Roller Bowl title. Seiver couldn’t win the flip to save his tournament life and he bowed out in 2nd place, while Rast took his rightful throne and $7,525,000.
