The exciting $300,000 buy-in 2016 Super High Roller Bowl that played out this week kicked off a busy summer of poker in Las Vegas. Starting with 49 entrants and a $15 million prize pool, Rainer Kempe eventually outlasted a tough 49-entry field to claim the $5 million first prize.
Between PokerNews' start-to-finish live reporting and televised coverage via PokerCentral and CBS Sports throughout, the event gave poker fans a lot to enjoy — and a lot to learn from, too, thanks to the top-level play and great commentary from Ali Nejad and Nick Schulman.
This week's installment of The Weekly PokerNews Strategy Quiz focuses in particular on the last eight knockouts of the event — starting before the money bubble burst (at seven players) and ending with the last hand between Kempe and runner-up Fedor Holz.
Get six of eight correct and you make the money (so to speak) with a passing grade, and if you happen to miss any questions, you'll get an explanation of the correct response.
When you finish you'll see a leaderboard letting you know how you did compared to others, and if you're logged into your PokerNews account your username will appear amid the standings. If you don't have a PokerNews account already, click here to create one.
