A Deeper Look at the 50+ Players Planning to Play the $500,000 Super High Roller Bowl

A Deeper Look at the 50+ Players Planning to Play the $500,000 Super High Roller Bowl 0001

From June 27 through July 4, 2015, ARIA Resort & Casino is planned to play host to the 2015 Super High Roller Series. Among the events will be a monster $500,000 buy-in tournament deemed the Super High Roller Bowl.

Over 50 players are said to be planning to play the event, including top poker names such as Phil Ivey, Phil Hellmuth, Erik Seidel, Brian Rast, Isaac Haxton, and Phil Galfond.

If all of these players do in fact play, then that means the prize pool will be in excess of $25 million. This will without a doubt be one of the largest prize pools in the history of the game, and it is estimated that an $8.25 million first-place prize will be up for grabs if the event attracts 50 entries.

The event's official website has a special page dedicated to all of the anticipated players, but PokerNews, with the help of PokerNews.NL's Frank Op de Woerd, went a little deeper into the poker records for each. Below is a table of what we've found from the list of players that total over $354 million in combined live tournament earnings.
