Phil Ivey Grabs Late Seat in Super High Roller Bowl11 months ago
Guess who’s back? Back in town…it’s Phil Ivey, taking up a late seat in the $300,000 buy-in Super High Roller Bowl starting this weekend at the Aria Casino in Las Vegas, joining the likes of Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth, Bill Perkins and last year’s $6million winner Christoph Vogelsang.
Last week’s Triton Series saw Ivey cash for the first time in more than two years with a win and a 3rd spot in the Short Deck High Roller events, scooping $2.2million in the process and renewing old rivalries with Tom Dwan and Patrik Antonius in the massive cash games which accompanied the tournaments.
This weekend he has jumped at the chance to take up Tony G’s seat and it will Ivey’s first appearance in the event since 2015 – fans of the game hoping it will be the start of a full-time return to tournament poker for the legend who has over $26million in cashes and 10 WSOP bracelets to his name.
The four-day long SHRB features a $5million top prize, 47 of the 48 entrants putting up $300k to compete for the $14,400,000 prizepool and the coveted Super High Roller Bowl championship ring.
The 48th spot will go to one lucky online satellite winner, taking a seat with the world’s very best players, with Kathy Lehne as the only female representing among the boys and she is last on the betting list according to Oddsshark.com.
Where Ivey will fit into the odds market is unclear (the top 10 favourites given below) but you can expect a lot of last-minute cash to be thrown at an Ivey victory!
