Super High Roller Bowl 2021

The Super High Roller Bowl is back in a live setting for the first time since March of 2020 with two festivals during 2021 — the Super High Roller Bowl Europe and the Super High Roller VI in Las Vegas just before the World Series of Poker.

The first of two Super High Roller Bowls took place during late August, which counted 8 events and the Main Event among its schedule.

The Super High Roller Europe festival was held in Cyprus with the typical nosebleed buy-ins required for entry, ranging from $25,000 to the $250,000 Main Event. As is the case with Super High Roller Bowls of late, the tournaments included Short Deck Hold’em events, as well as the more traditional No Limit Hold’em tournaments.

Here is a look at who won big during the 1-week festival:
