And then there were three. A pair of Germans are trying to prevent Jake Schindler from shipping $6 million and taking down the 2017 Super High Roller Bowl. The Aria Casino has been a battle ground for the previous four days as 56 high-balling and high-rolling slugged it out for a shot at $6 million and a cut of the $16.8 million prize pool. Only the top 7 places paid out, with a min-cash worth $600K.
On Day 4, eight players went into battle and when the day ended only three were left standing. American Jake Schindler leads the final three with a big stack worth 10.6M, which is nearly twice as much as Christoph Vogelsang (5.2M). Stefan Schillhabel is super short with 885K. Looks like it will be an inevitable showdown between Schindler and Vogelsang.
Only the top 7 got paid, which means that Jason Koon bubbled the money when he busted in eighth place. ZeeJustin went out in seventh place, followed by Pratyush Buddiga in sixth place, Byron Kaverman in fifth place, and Leon Tsoukernik in fourth place.
The final three payouts are $2.4M, $3.6M, and $6M to the champ.
