Welcome to The Star Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, for Day 1 of the Super High Roller Bowl Australia.
The Super High Roller Bowl has been played in the cities of Las Vegas, Macau, London, and Nassau, and now the Gold Coast will join that list following a successful Australian Poker Open. Held for the first time, the Australian Poker Open was a seven-event schedule saw the likes of Mike Watson, Andras Nemeth, Timothy Adams, Farid Jattin, Stephen Chidwick, and Luc Greenwood all win events, while the lone Australian to take a title would be Michael Addamo who won the AU$100,000 Main Event. With Chidwick finishing in-the-money in fourth-place, he earned enough points to be crowned the Australian Poker Open Championship winner ahead of Nemeth and Addamo.
In total, eight Super High Roller Bowl champions have been crowned in four countries, and now a night will be crowned in just three days time here in Australia. Canada’s Daniel Dvoress is the most recent Super High Roller Bowl champion following his victory in the Bahamas back in November 2019, where he bested a 51-entrant field to collect the $4,080,000 first place prize and take his live tournament earnings to $15.6 million.
Following discussions with players, several players have confirmed that they will be playing. Super High Roller Bowl London champion Cary Katz, Australian Poker Open event winners Chidwick and Addamo, along with Seth Davies, Orpen Kisacikoglu, Kahle Burns, and Aaron Van Blarcum are all expected to be in the field while many players are still here in the Gold Coast enjoying the summer sunshine and beautiful beaches.
