Super High Roller Bowl Online Series heads to partypoker with $20 million guaranteed
With the Poker Masters in the books last week, high rollers have another big online event to look forward to. Poker Central and partypoker will hold the inaugural Super High Roller Bowl Online Series from May 23 to June 1.
The series features 28 two-day events with more than $20 million guaranteed. Tournament buy-ins range from $10,000 to $100,000. The series kicks off with a $25,500 event with a $1 million guarantee.
“After a successful Poker Masters Online tournament, we knew we had to continue the momentum with an online Super High Roller Bowl series in lieu of a live tournament this year,” said J.R. McCabe, chief business officer of Poker Central.
“Our partnership with partypoker will allow us to continue to deliver what our fans love – live poker from the best players in the world.”
The series culminates with the Super High Roller Bowl Online, an eight-max, two-day freezeout with a guarantee of $3 million. The championship event features a $102,000 buy-in.
The player collecting the most points in the first 27 events will be declared the series champion. That honor earns a free entry ticket to the Super High Roller Bowl Online.
Other than the series finale, all events will be in a re-entry format. The full schedule hasn’t been announced but will be posted here when it’s released.
“In this time of increased caution, partypoker’s goal is to help fans and players in the poker industry continue to partake in the excitement of the game,” partypoker managing director Tom Waters said.
“The Super High Roller Bowl has consistently grown in popularity while expanding to international territories, and our online format will provide the perfect place for fans and players from all over the world to continue to gather for this tournament.”
Charity series for poker dealers continues this week
Partypoker’s Grand Prix 4 Dealers continues all week through May 3. As part of the event, 100% of registration fees go directly to dealers who were booked to work at partypoker LIVE events that have been postponed or moved online. This includes partner and sponsored events in the Triton, WPT, and WSOP circuits.
Partypoker officials hope to raise $100,000 in the effort. If the target is met, Dusk Til Dawn Poker Club owner Rob Yong will match the total.
The tournament buy-in is $55 and starting flights run everyday for the first eight days. Qualifying players will advance to the final day on May 3. Satellites are running from just $2.20. Partypoker has also begun a JustGiving page to help in the cause.

- Special SCOOP Spin & Go’s – These offer Main Event tickets worth $10,300 from as little as $4.
- Sunday Storm Anniversary Promotion – The first 50,000 players who bust in the Sunday Storm anniversary receive a SCOOP Freeroll ticket. Tickets to the Medium Main Event will be up for grabs.
- Player of the Series Leaderboard – Player leaderboards have been altered a bit this year.
