Only 19 players took part in the $50,000 buy-in Super High Roller event, including the likes of Isaac Haxton, Dan Colman, Josh Arieh and Jason Koon. The low turnout meant only the best four players received money:  Ivan Luva (4th, $120,000), Rainer Kempe (3rd, $180,000), Jake Schindler (2nd, $260,000) and Nick Schulman (1st, $440,000).
