Super High Roller Event Gaining Attention

This summer the Aria plans on offering a Super High Roller Bowl which has a price tag of $500,000 to enter. This is a high dollar amount that many poker players just cannot afford, expect the elite. The event will not take place until July but already the number of players set to complete has passed the 40 entry mark. The event is set to be a big money maker, with the field continuing to grow at a nice pace.

The event has seen seven additional players sign up to compete in just the past two weeks. That is $3.5 million in entry fees paid, a crazy amount of cash. The tournament will begin on the 2nd of July and will continue until the 4th, which sets the event taking place right before the World Series of Poker begins their Main Event. This allows players who are in town to take place in the Aria event as well as the WSOP Main Event.

We do not know if the registration for this event will eventually be capped or if the Aria will let players continue to pony up the massive buy-in to compete. The goal is to have a $25 million prize pool and offer a first place prize of $8 million+. To meet these numbers, the event would need 50 entries, which should be doable as players continue to sign up to compete.

The Aria website is keeping the poker community in the know as to who is signing up to compete and how many players are registered. So far, the new players set to compete include someone known as a Hedge Fund Manager, a retired businessman and a CEO. Once the event begins, it will be interesting to see how many players are actually going to compete and how large the prize pool will be!
