Daniel Negreanu, Antonio Esfandiari, Jason Mercier and 46 of poker’s biggest ballers are going to be live and in prime time later this summer as the $300,000 buy-in Poker Central Super High Roller Bowl is being broadcast live on CBS Sports Network.

“We are excited to bring this world championship event to CBS Sports Network,” said Clint Stinchcomb, CEO of Poker Central, the company behind the tournament. “With $15 million on the line and the world’s best players, including the top four all-time money winners as well as six former #1 ranked players, the Super High Roller Bowl will have audiences glued to the game.”

A total of 30 hours of coverage will air on CBS Sports Network over four consecutive days beginning Sunday, May 29. There will also be additional action streamed live on Twitch and Facebook Live each day prior to the live TV coverage including an hour-long Road to the Final Table show previewing the final table.

The event, which is being held at the ARIA Resort and Casino, is capped at 49 players and sold out in February – three months before the event. Other players who have secured their spot including Phil Hellmuth, Dan Colman, Phil Galfond and Scott Seiver.

“I’ve never seen a high stakes tournament sell out three months in advance. It’s unprecedented,” said Sean McCormack, ARIA Director of Poker Operations.

The event is being labeled as “negative rake” event. Each players’ full $300,000 buy-in goes towards the prize pool and sponsors, including MVMT watches, have kicked in an additional $300,000 to bring the total prize pool to $15 million.

Last year’s event had a $500,000 buy-in and 47 players. Brian Rast defeated Seiver heads up to win $7,525,000. Rast will be back to defend his title this year. For a complete list of players visit SuperHighRoller.com.
