The illustrious 2021 Super High Roller Bowl Europe has ended after a total count of ten events. These super high roller events ranged from a low of only $25,000 buy-ins to a high of an incredible quarter of a million dollars for the championship.
The tournament was divided between two distinct formats, the ever-popular no-limit hold’em for one and short deck for the other. Each format held at least five events. Throughout the series, an incredible $27,650,000 in prizes were paid out to players.
The first of the final two events to close out the tournament was the $50,000 buy-in short deck event. The winner of this event, Seth Davies had to overcome a field of 19 entries to claim $435,400, the largest share of the $950,000 prize pool this event raised.
This win also left the former World Poker Tournament Champion with 204 Card Player Player of the Year points, which is his ninth POY qualifying win this year. So far, Davies has amassed a haul of 2,190 POY points, placing him 26th on the 2021 leaderboard. He also hauled in 261 PokerGo points giving him a total this year of 1,186 points for 11th place on the leaderboard right now.
The last tournament of the Super High Roller Bowl Europe was the $50,000 buy-in no-limit hold ’em event. This ever-popular format attracted a field of 26 entries building a $1,300,000 prize pool. Once the dust settled, the last player standing was Ali Imsirovic to claim $598,000 and 306 POY points on top of it.
This win marks the tenth title Imsirovic has earned this year and the 22nd time this player has sat at a POY qualifying table this year. This has given the player an average of only slightly more than eleven days between POY tables, currently leaving him on track to break Jake Schindlers POY record. This would require Imsoviric to make more than 32 tables.
Even if he does not break Schindler’s record, Imsoviric looks like a shoo-in for Player of the Year as he was already well in the lead before this win widened the gap even more, leaving him 1,781 points ahead of his closest competitor. In addition to POY points, Imsoviric earned 359 PokerGO points widening his existing lead in this race as well. Currently, he sits 1,011 points ahead of his closest competitor, leaving Imsoviric with a high possibility of winning both races.
