Eight players remaining. Only seven get a cut of the $16.8 million prize pool. The winner of the 2017 Super High Roller Bowl at the Aria Casino in Las Vegas is scheduled to win $6 million. The $300,000 buy-in event attracted 56 of the premier, high-balling, high stakes crowd. Among the non-sharks in the mix... Kevin Hart. The comedian/actor has become a recent fixture on the high roller scene as the latest celeb pitchman for PokerStars. Hart made serious waves in the universe when he knocked out a couple of high-profile pros. I mean, no one figured out how to beat Fedor Holz...yet somehow, someway, Hart managed to bust Holz.
Speaking of Germans, two of them are still left in the hunt at the SHR Bowl... Christoph Vogelsang and Stefan Schillhabel. Will one of the Germans take it down? Or will Jake Schindler, the American with the German name, ship $6M?
Only the top 7 places get paid out, so with 8 remaining we're on the money bubble. One player is going to go home with zilch, while the other seven will lock up a min-cash worth $600K, or double their buy-in. High-stakes denizen and gold trader Dan Shak busted late on Day 3 in ninth place.
When everyone bagged up chips at the end of the night, Jake Schindler led the way with over 4M. Christoph Vogelsang and Byron Kaverman are the only other stacks without at least 2M.
