After months of anticipation, the 2017 Super High Roller Bowl field is finally complete and the 56th player to join the year’s biggest event is world-renowned actor and comedian Kevin Hart. After playing some big buy-in events through the first half of the year, Hart is raising the stakes in a big, big way. Poker Central is excited to announce that Kevin Hart will compete in this year’s $300,000 buy-in Super High Roller Bowl.
Starting on May 28th, fans of poker and Kevin Hart will be able to watch the biggest tournament of the year live as Hart faces off against poker’s best. That star-studded lineup, which is now literally star-studded with the inclusion of Hart, will be competing for an over $16 million prize pool.
“I love playing high stakes poker, and there’s no better competition than at the Super High Roller Bowl – the world championship of high stakes poker,” said Kevin Hart, before adding, “I am looking forward to all the support and positive vibes from my fans who will be tuning in through Poker Central to watch me stomp all over the competition.”
That will be easier said than done for Hart, who has some poker chops but will be up against poker legends Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth and Antonio Esfandiari later this month. The rest of Hart’s competition is a combination of the world’s best high-stakes players, online crushers and successful businessmen that the poker world has to offer.
The first day of the Super High Roller Bowl will be live streamed through YouTube, Twitch and Facebook Live. Viewers from all over the world will be able to watch Hart and the rest of the field battle it out in hopes of advancing to the second day. The remainder of the tournament will be streamed in entirety on Poker Central’s digital distribution channels, until a champion is crowned.
