After a grueling Day 3 session saw the money bubble burst and the field play down to the final six, PokerGO coverage of the 2018 Super High Roller Bowl continues with an end-to-end broadcast of the final table. Daniel Negreanu, Justin Bonomo, and defending champion Christoph Vogelsang are live on PokerGO and you can begin to watch below.
A complete list of the final table seating assignments and player chip counts is provided below:
While the big names will certainly shine brightest at today’s final table, they won’t start the day with the biggest stacks. Mikita Badizakouski won the biggest pot of the tournament against Stephen Chidwick to take the chip lead on Day 3 and ever since, the Belarusian has not given it up. Badizakouski won’t have it easy though, as the second biggest stack is to his direct left.
That is where Daniel Negreanu will square up. “Kid Poker” is going for poker history and potential immortality at the Super High Roller Bowl final table. He can become the first player to ever amass more than $40,000,000 in career tournament earnings and add a Super High Roller Bowl title to an already packed career resume.
Justin Bonomo’s career resume may not stack up to Negreanu’s just yet, but Bonomo is having a career-best year and when it is all said and done, it may be one of the best in history. He has cashed for over $8 million already in 2018 and is making his third-straight Super High Roller Bowl final table. Bonomo finished 7th in 2017, won Super High Roller Bowl China in March of this year, and returns in the top-half of today’s final table leaderboard.
There is a sizable gap between Bonomo and the second-half of the leaderboard, but all three are very capable players. Jason Koon enters with just under 50 big blinds, booking his first Super High Roller Bowl cash after busting on the bubble last year. Nick Petrangelo is also making his first trip to the Super High Roller Bowl payout cage, but most of the early eyes will be on Christoph Vogelsang.
The German enters today’s final table with under 20 big blinds, making Vogelsang the short stack. While he is short, he is the only player left with the experience of winning a Super High Roller Bowl. If the 2017 champion can spin early, he could fight his way into contention for the second-straight year.
