Ali Imsirovic Leads Super High Roller Bowl Online; $1.7m for the Winner
Table Of Contents
After almost eight-and-a-half hours of play, just 13 players remain in the Super High Roller Bowl Online on partypoker.
The field of 50 players - the fourth-biggest in Super High Roller Bowl history - generated a prize pool of $5,000,000, beating the guarantee by $2,000,000. The winner will take home $1,775,000 and the SHRB Championship Ring.
A late surge by Super High Roller Bowl London runner-up Ali Imsirovic (2,226,009) denied David Peters (2,107,400) the overnight chip lead. Peters had held the lead for much of the day, but will have to come from behind if he's going to take down the title.

Super High Roller Online Day 1 Recap
By the end of the first level, the field was already up to 40 players with reigning WSOP Main Event champion Hossein Ensan leading after making a flush against Pavel Veksler.
Veksler would become the first elimination of the day at the hands of Darrell Goh. Other early eliminations included Stephen Chidwick, Mikita Badziakouski, Kahle Burns, Adrian Mateos, and partypoker Ambassador Kristen Bicknell.
During the early part of the day, the chip lead changed hands on numerous occasions, but ultimately it was David Peters (pictured) who took control in sensational fashion. After eliminating Chris Hunichen, Chi Zhang and Andras Nemeth in the space of an hour, he moved up to two million in chips, more than double second-in-chips Sam Greenwood at the time.
Ensan was a high-profile elimination after registration closed, who flopped a flush when all-in against Dan Shak, only for Shak to go runner-runner to make a full house and eliminate Ensan. Also eliminated after registration closed were Artur Martirosian, Thomas Boivin, Dan Smith, Matthias Eibinger and Seth Davies.
Peters still led with 24 and 16 players remaining, but found his chip lead under threat with two tables remaining as both Sam Greenwood and Ali Imsirovic caught up to him.
Wiktor Malinowski, Ben Sulsky and Jason Koon were the last three eliminations of the day, and ultimately it was Imsirovic who got his nose ahead of Peters and will return in the lead with 13 players remaining.
