Poker Central Announces 'INSIDERS: Super High Roller Bowl 2018' Series
A new documentary series, INSIDERS: Super High Roller Bowl 2018, will debut tomorrow, Thursday, May 10, on PokerGO.
The series, which was produced by Poker Central and full-service digital video agency CakeWorks, features three pros – Daniel Negreanu, Brandon Adams, and Seth Davies – as they prepare for the 2018 Super High Roller Bowl, which will take place at ARIA from May 27-30.
The $300,000 buy-in tournament will feature 48 players, 30 of which were selected by random lottery and the other 18 being VIP guest entrants. Negreanu was selected via the lottery, while both Adams and Davies were among the 15 VIPs selected by Poker Central and ARIA.
“We wanted to give our fans a new perspective on poker - an inside look at the training it takes for these high stakes players to be at the top of their game.”
The seven-episode series, produced in collaboration with Emmy-winning producer Jesse Cook, known for his work on the SHOWTIME original series “All Access,” will premiere Episode No. 1 for a limited time on Poker Central’s YouTube Channel. Subsequent episodes will be released in the weeks leading up to and immediately following the 2018 Super High Roller Bowl.
Each episode will offer a behind-the-scenes look at how the triumvirate of high rollers prepare for one of the most prestigious events in the world. The show is set to capture all the mental and physical preparations top players undertake, including studying game theory, tells and more. For Davies, it even included training with two-time boxing champ Shawn Porter.
“We wanted to give our fans a new perspective on poker - an inside look at the training it takes for these high stakes players to be at the top of their game,” said Sam Simmons, vice president of content at Poker Central. “We look forward to highlighting the intense preparation that Daniel, Brandon and Seth undergo in their own unique ways leading up to and throughout the Super High Roller Bowl.”
Co-founder and CEO of CakeWorks Rebecca Paoletti added: “We’re delighted to debut this intimate series on PokerGO with our long-time partners at Poker Central."
Poker Central’s extraordinary access gave us the ability to go beyond the tournament and peek inside secret poker worlds, both on and off the felt.
