The Super High Roller Event at the 2018 World Series of Poker Europe - WSOPE - is currently under way.Last year, the World Series of Poker Europe hosted the High Roller for One Drop event, which ended up attracting 88 unique entries and a total of 44 rebuys. This ended up building a very healthy prize pool of almost €13 million, which was quite a bit higher than the guaranteed prize pool of €10,000,000.

This year, tournament organizers were expecting that the €100,000 Super High Roller event would do significantly smaller numbers, with the guarantee having been set at €5 million.

In the end, the turnout for the €100,000 Super High Roller event ended up being very healthy, as there were a total of 95 entries and re-entries this year, which ended up creating a prize pool of over €9 million. Not as much as the One Drop event last year, though still significantly ahead of expectations.

This prize pool means that the eventual winner of the event will take home €2,624,340, which translates into nearly $3 million USD.

All eight final table participants will be guaranteed a minimum payout of €264,110.


The €100,000 Super High Roller event attracted some of the very best high buy-in tournament players in the world, including the likes of Igor Kurganov, Steve O'Dwyer and Steffen Sontheimer.

There are currently 25 players left in the tournament - here is the top of the leaderboard as of this moment:

1. Timothy Adams, 19,000,000
2. Dominick Nitsche, 16,600,000
3. Orpen Kisacikoglu, 12,800,000
4. Jan-Eric Schwippert, 12,600,000
5. Vladimir Troyanovskiy, 11,600,000

The top 15 positions will pay out, which means that the money bubble will likely be reached by the end of play today.
