Yesterday, we featured poker’s “Big Three”, as Daniel Negreanu, Erik Seidel and Daniel Colman were all in the ARIA $25K High Roller field. As poker’s top three lifetime money earners, Negreanu, Seidel and Colman account for nearly $92,000,000 in live tournament earnings and while none are participating in today’s $50K Super High Roller field, ARIA’s own “Big Three” are.
Tom Marchese, Cary Katz and Jake Schindler are all in the Top 10 on ARIA’s All-Time Money List but they are 1st, 2nd and 3rd on ARIA’s Career Cash list. Marchese leads the way with 22 career ARIA cashes, with Katz hot on his heels with 21 results. Schindler rounds out the podium with 16 ARIA scores.
As last year’s most successful High Rollers, it is no surprise that Katz and Schindler have both already recorded wins this year. Katz opened 2017 with a $25K High Roller victory and Schindler won Thursday’s $25K High Roller. What is surprising, is that Marchese has yet to find pay dirt this year.
Marchese will hope that that can change today, while Katz, who is the only non-professional in today’s field and, at the time of publication looks to be the current $50K Super High Roller chip leader, will try to record another score that will move him into a tie at the top of the ARIA Career Cashes list.
Poker Central will pick up updates of the ARIA $50K Super High Roller once the field is down to the final table.
