Day 1 would see a total of six levels play out in the sixth installment of the Super High Roller Bowl in Las Vegas as 19 players created a $5.7 million prize pool. Registration remains open through to the start of play on Day 2, and once it has closed, the Day 2 seating draw will commence with the field locked out for Super High Roller Bowl VI.
Daniel Negreanu was an early casualty on Day 1, and joining the 2018 Super High Roller Bowl runner-up on the rail included Adrian Mateos, Ali Imsirovic, Stephen Chidwick, Nick Petrangelo, Jason Koon, David Einhorn, Cary Katz, and Mikita Badziakouski as just ten players survived into Day 2 with Alex Foxen finishing as chip leader with 913,000 in chips to edge out Seth Davies with 896,000. Rounding out the top half of the leaderboard to sit above average in chips include recent Poker Masters Purple Jacket winner Michael Addamo (822,000), three-time Super High Roller Bowl champion Justin Bonomo (809,000), and Jake Schindler (628,000).

Currently, there are three places set to be paid, but with three more entrants, that will increase to money-paying spots. Several names that have circulated around the PokerGO Studio throughout the day as likely late registrants include Sam Soverel, Sean Winter, Sean Perry, Dan Smith, and Randy Kaas. Players registering on Day 2 will begin with 300,000 in starting chips and blinds at 3,000 / 6,000 with a 6,000 big-blind ante.
As it stands, the current first-place prize also sees 600 PokerGO Tour presented by Guaranteed Rate points associated it with it meaning that the top ten on the leaderboard is expected to be shaken up. The eliminated Imsirovic currently holds top spot, but others sitting in the top ten that are still in Super High Roller Bowl VI include Brewer, Peters, Foxen, Davies, and Schindler.
