The inaugural Super High Roller Bowl Online Series (SHRB) is in full swing at partypoker, with more than $20 million in guarantees being given away until June 2. The online festival, which runs in collaboration with Poker Central, kicked off on May 23, featuring 29 high-roller events, spread across 11 days of top-notch action at the virtual tables. The 2020 edition of the popular nosebleed-stakes tournament was moved online due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Earlier this week, the series crowned its first winners, which included Dutch poker pro Jans Arends and Spanish player Sergi Reixach who both won the first two $10,300 buy-in NLHE events. American poker pro Chrisoph Hunichen triumphed in the first $25,500 buy-in event, while Mikalai Vaskaboinikau, Daniel Dvoress, and Pascal Lefrancois also captured their own SHRB Online titles.
Just recently, six more champions have been added to the roster, with 16 events yet to take place. Who are the latest winners? Take a look below.
Luuk Gieles Conquers Event #7
Event #7: $10,300 High Roller [8-Max], which attracted a total of 90 entries, was taken down by Luuk Gieles from The Netherlands. The Dutch poker pro outclassed Mexico’s George Wolff heads-up to capture the top prize worth $234,000, as well as the second SHRB Online title for his home country. Wolff meanwhile won $166,500 for his runner-up finish.
Some well-known high-rollers also made it to the final table, including Mikita Badziakouski, Jonathan van Fleet, and Ali Imsirovic.
Dan Smith Takes Down Event #8
