Intense only begins to describe the mood of the 2017 Super High Roller Bowl on Day 3. The $600,000 bubble is on the horizon with eight places getting paid and 11 players left to be eliminated before that happens.
Now available on PokerGO is full Day 3 coverage of Super High Roller Bowl and the stakes are as high as they have ever been. Start your weekend by reliving one of the most exciting days of poker from last year.
The mighty fall harder than ever with Daniel Negreanu among the heaviest to topple. Negreanu starts Day 3 on the short stack and is on an uphill climb to make the money, adding another cash to his legendary resume. The only obstacles in the way of Negreanu are time and Jake Schindler.
Day 3 is where the Schindler train formally picks up steam. Schindler is an effective co-owner of the ARIA with his name etched in second-place on the all-time money and wins list at the property. The final table is near for Schindler when Day 3 arrives. Schindler catapults himself into full contention by eliminating Negreanu near the money bubble on his way to the silver medal.
Pratyush Buddiga and “Loose” Leon Tsoukernik are on the feature table as well as they continue their march to the final eight. This is the first we see of Buddiga, who etches his name in Super High Roller Bowl history with a dramatic hand against Schindler at the final table.
The title of “bubble boy” in the $300,000 buy-in belongs to Dan Shak. It was a rough summer in large buy-ins for Shak, who also stone-bubbled the World Series of Poker One Drop event.
Other players knocked out near the money include Jason Mercier, Bill Klein, 2015 Super High Roller Bowl winner Brian Rast, and defending champ Rainer Kempe.
The bubble is just the start of the dramatics as the final table on Day 4 brings out the best of the remaining competitors.
