Raising The Stakes in Macau
About the Super High Roller Bowl heading to Asia, Vice President of Content Sam Simmons said, “As the annual Super High Roller Bowl out of Las Vegas continues to be the gold standard for high roller tournament poker, we knew the time was right to expand the format globally. China is one of poker’s largest markets, and Macau Billionaire Poker is a natural partner to help bring the Super High Roller Bowl series to poker fans internationally.”
Tim Chen, CEO of Macau Billionaire Poker, said, “We wanted to raise the stakes by providing a prize pool befitting of the event’s renowned stature – we can’t wait to see what unfolds at this inaugural event.”
