The Railbird Report: An Overview of Super High Roller Bowl’s 56 Players

The Super High Roller Bowl starts in 10 days, running May 28 through June 1. PokerNews will be on the floor to exclusively bring you live updates from the event. It’s going to be big, and PokerNews will be your destination to stay up to date.

In the raffle last February, 35 players locked up their seat. Poker Central later decided to expand the Bowl to 56 players.

Right after the raffle, we looked at all the stats in the article ‘The Highs and Lows of the Super High Roller Bowl‘. Besides one anonymous business man and a vacant spot left by Baldwin dropping out, all names are out. So it’s time for an update.

Nineteen players deposited the $30,000 to try to get in, but didn’t get their names called in the raffle. Since then, Bill Klein, Jason Koon, Dan Colman, Jason Mercier, Talal Shakerchi, Dan Shak, Zach Hyman, Dan Smith, Justin Bonomo and Daniel Negreanu have been let in anyway.

On top of those 10 names, 10 players were let in by Poker Central. Phil Hellmuth, Cary Katz, Bill Perkins, Dan Perper, Isaac Baron, John Morgan, Tony G, Leon Tsoukernik, Lauren Roberts and Kevin Hart all signed up.

Now that Bobby Baldwin has withdrawn from the event, just one spot is open and to be announced before the event gets underway. The website also lists an anonymous businessman to take a seat. The following nine players tried to get in initially via the raffle, but weren’t picked:

Adrian Mateos Darren Elias Max Silver
Jan-Eric Schwippert Sergio Aido Charlie Carrel
Stephen Chidwick Jonathan Jaffe Max Altergott

From the list of players in the black for this event, only Timofey Kuznetsov isn’t partaking in this year’s event. Kathy Lehne, Keith Gipson, Stephen Chidwick, Tony Gregg, Vitaliy Rizhkov, Ben Lamb, Baldwin and Brandon Steven all played last year, but aren’t this year (unless one of them is the anonymous businessman). Phil Ivey was notably absent last year and isn’t returning this year either.

Here’s a look at all the players who have partaken in this event over the years. Brian Rast is the biggest winner, taking down the title the first year when the buy-in was still $500,000. Erik Seidel is the sole player to cash in both previous events. His min-cash in 2015 (seventh place, $860,000) and deep run last year (third place, $2,400,000) make for a profit of $2,460,000 for the eight-time bracelet winner.

Three Biggest Pots Online

With the Super High Roller Bowl running May 28 through June 1 and the World Series of Poker May 31 through July 22, action is going to be live mostly. But, there are always players staying at home to grind it out online. With a long summer ahead, action hasn’t slowed down online just yet. Here’s a look at the three biggest pots online since our last Railbird Report update.


1) Ben “Ben86” Tollerene Wins a $95,815 Pot (240 Big Blinds) Off Timofey “Trueteller” Kuznetsov
($200/$400 PLO HU)

With $8,800 in the middle already, the flop came {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}. Tollerene continuation bet $4,318,50. Kuznetsov called.

As the {2-Spades} hit the turn, Tollerene checked. Kuznetsov bet $12,955 into $17,437. Tollerene shoved for $39,189 and Kuznetsov called.

Online High-Stakes Action in the Last Month

Since our last update, Kuznetsov has really cleaned up. He’s up a massive $715,000 since last month, making for a profit of over $1,000,000 for 2017. BERRI SWEET is a distant second and “LLinusLLove” follows in third place.

The last four weeks haven’t been good for Dutch grinder “Ravenswood13.” He was the biggest winner in our last update, but now finds his nickname on top of the list with biggest losing players. Stern and Kristijonas “greezhool” Andrulis follow in second and third place.
