Event #4 $50,000 NLH
After the three $25,000 events kicking off the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Super High Roller Series Sochi this week, today’s final table will see seven seasoned super high rollers compete for the trophy and its accompanying $765,000 in prize money in Event #4: $50,000 No Limit Hold’em. As expected, the raising of the buy-in proved no obstacle to the enthusiasm of the elite group of poker players gathered in Russia for this week of high-stakes NLH tournaments.
A total of 45 entries generated a total prize pool of $2,250,000 in this event and all of it will be awarded today; with Kahle Burns’ exit on the bubble, all seven returning players are guaranteed at least $112,500 for having made it to Day 2.
In contention are some of the most experienced Super High Roller crushers in the business, including Cary Katz (who finished fourth in Event #1 here on Saturday for $105,000), Luc and Sam Greenwood and Aaron Van Blarcum who is making an astounding third final table appearance (out of four events in Sochi so far). Van Blarcum has already won over a quarter of a million dollars here and, lying second in chips on the final table, is in good shape to challenge for the title.
Rounding out the final table are online crusher Wiktor “limitless” Malinowski, Artur Martirosyand and chip leader (and partypoker Pro) Mikita Baziakouski.
