30 Players Selected for the 2018 Super High Roller Bowl

Posted On 26 Mar, 2018 0

The 2018 Super High Roller Bowl lottery was aired on PokerGO on Wednesday, 21st March and the first 30 seats have been confirmed. The $300,000 buy-in event will begin on 27th May 2018, and a total of 61 entries to the lottery were submitted, out of which only 48 seats will be handed out.

The ARIA Resort and Casino in Las Vegas has been hosting the SHRB since its inaugural event in 2015, and two previous winners in Christoph Vogelsang and Brian Rast have made the cut via the lottery system. On the other hand, 2016 SHRB winner Rainer Kempe has failed to make the cut.

Other popular players who haven't made it to the first 30 include the likes of Dan Smith, Doug Polk, Joe McKeehen, Bryn Kenney, Jake Schindler, Stefan Schillhabel, Fedor Holz and Dietrich Fast. However, all these guys have another chance to make the cut, in a list that will be finalized by ARIA in the weeks to come.

List of first 30 confirmed seats:

  1. Andrew Robl - USA
  2. Adrian Mateos - Spain
  3. Daniel Negreanu - Canada
  4. Igor Kurganov - Russia
  5. Sergio Aido - Spain
  6. Markus Dürnegger - Austria
  7. Koray Aldemir - Germany
  8. Stephen Chidwick - UK
  9. Keith Tilston - USA
  10. Ben Tollerene - USA
  11. Andreas Eiler - Germany
  12. Andrew Lichtenberger - USA
  13. Talal Shakerchi - UK
  14. David Peters - USA
  15. Brian Rast - USA
  16. Christoph Vogelsang - Germany
  17. Christian Christner - Germany
  18. Kathy Lehne - USA
  19. Erik Seidel - USA
  20. John Andress - USA
  21. Cary Katz - USA
  22. Isaac Haxton - USA
  23. Nick Petrangelo - USA
  24. Byron Kaverman - USA
  25. Nikita Bodyakovskiy - Belarus
  26. Justin Bonomo - USA
  27. Phil Hellmuth - USA
  28. Arne Ruge - Germany
  29. Kahle Burns - Australia
  30. Dan Shak - USA

Spain seems to be well represented at the event, with Mateos & Aido in the mix, while Germany is the second most represented country, only behind the hosts USA. Earlier this month, Justin Bonomo won the inaugural SHRB China for $4.8 million, and he will certainly fancy his chances in the 2018 SHRB.

With 30 seats already selected via this random lottery process hosted by Daniel Negreanu and Phil Hellmuth on PokerGO, 18 seats are still up for grabs. The other 31 will battle to qualify for the event through 16 seats awarded by ARIA, or through the 2 satellites available for the event.
