Tuesday, 5 April 2011

Tournaments for players with only the deepest of pockets seem to be flavour of the month at the moment with the WPT the latest to add an event aimed at the super bankrolled.

The $100,000 Super High Roller event will take place at the WPT Championship series at Bellagio from 18-19 May 2011. Given his super hot start to the year, it's no surprise that Erik Seidel is the first name confirmed for next month's showdown. Joining the $4m man in confirming their attendance are Justin 'BoostedJ' Smith and Dan Shak.

“Hosting a hundred thousand dollar buy-in event within the WPT World Championship series means the world’s elite players have a chance to show their mettle as they battle for one of the year’s most coveted titles and one of the highest buy-in titles, all within a single week,” said Steve Heller, CEO of the World Poker Tour.
