Where to Watch the Aria Super High Roller Bowl1 year ago
It has 56 of the world’s best poker players and leading amateurs paying $300,000 apiece to vie for the $6million first prize and it kicks off tonight. It can only be the Super High Roller Bowl and you can watch the entire 5 days on PokerGO, the new channel which promises a feast of poker streaming over the summer months.
Doug Polk, Daniel Negreanu, Jason Mercier and a host of stars will be locking horns with the likes of Bill Perkins, John Morgan and Lauren Roberts, although last year’s 1-2-3 of Rainer Kempe, Fedor Holz and Erik Seidel will be looking for a repeat of their $multi-million runs in what was a hugely entertaining tournament.
The coverage left a lot to be desired last time round, so the hope is that Poker PROductions new shows via PokerGO, including the SHRB and WSOP, will bring the best of the best poker events to a wider audience.
That audience has the opportunity to watch the entire first day of the Super High Roller Bowl for free, which is a decent way to entice poker fans into the $10 per month (or $100 per year) subscription.
When you’re used to getting things for free it might be a bit off-putting to have to finally fork out to follow your passion, but the quality of the Mori Esfandani productions over the years would seem to make it worth it, the man himself appearing on the Chicago Joey podcast this week to share a lifetime of poker stories.
On Upswing Poker, Jose Aguilar gives a very good rundown of the pros and cons of the PokerGO setup:
“The most impressive aspect of the PokerGo App launch” he says is that, “it’s available globally with 0 region blocking. After testing it with a VPN using IPs from Honduras, United States, United Kingdom and Germany, I couldn’t find any difference at all in the content provided. This might be a first in the streaming service market.”
You’ll have to download the app, available for iOS and Apple TV, or stream it through the browser, but it uses the same technology as the likes of FC and MLB so as long as you have decent bandwidth it promises to be a high-definition delight.
What else do you get for your money?
Well, if you like what you see on the free stream for day 1, your $10 will get you not only the rest of the SHRB and the upcoming WSOP, but also access to the Poker Central vault – past episodes of Poker After Dark and SHRB, the new Matt Berkey docu-series ‘Dead Money’ as well as documentaries such as Grinders.
With such a massive field of talent and interest for their first stream, tune in today for free and see what the hype is all about. The SHRB kicks off at 4-30pm EDT with live action from the Aria Casino and Hotel.
