2020 Super High Roller Bowl Goes Online

Written By: Maya Michaels | April 30, 2020 | Posted In Poker News

Poker Central today announced that its premier poker tournament, the Super High Roller Bowl (SHRB), will be held online through partypoker’s platform.

This is the latest live poker tournament event to move online during the lockdown because of the global coronavirus pandemic.

Super High Roller Bowl Online will not be a stand-alone event although many others have been in the past. Instead, it will be part of a series of high-stakes tournaments starting on May 23 and culminating with the $100,000 Main Event June 1-2.

A total of $20 million will be guaranteed across the 28 events. And this includes the Super High Roller Bowl that closes out the series.

While past Super High Roller Bowls usually carried buy-ins of $250,000 to $500,000, the online edition makes it slightly more affordable at $100,000. The $3 million guarantee in that one figures to be the largest offered.

The popular tournament comes right after Poker Masters Online, another Poker Central staple, migrated to the virtual felt. The PMO that recently wrapped up on partypoker, featured $16.5 million in guarantees, which was more than doubled when the 30 events of the series paid out over $35.4 million.

“After a successful Poker Masters Online tournament, we knew we had to continue the momentum with an online Super High Roller Bowl series in lieu of a live tournament this year,” said Poker Central’s J.R. McCabe. 

“Our partnership with partypoker will allow us to continue to deliver what our fans love – live poker from the best players in the world.”

Partypoker Managing Director Tom Waters added: “In this time of increased caution, partypoker’s goal is to help fans and players in the poker industry continue to partake in the excitement of the game”. 

The full schedule is yet to be released.
