Poker Masters, Super High Roller Running Back-to-Back in September, October on PokerGO

PokerGO is bringing a one-two punch of high roller events in September and October. The streaming service and poker tournament operator announced recently that two of its marquee events, the Poker Masters and Super High Roller Bowl VII, will run consecutively this fall.

The combination brings poker players and fans more than two weeks of high stakes tournament action from the PokerGO Studio at Aria in Las Vegas.

“With Super High Roller VII taking place in the second half of the PGT season, we felt it was a great opportunity to pair it with the 2022 Poker Masters series to create a tremendous schedule of elite action,” PokerGO President of Mori Eskandani said in a news release.

“As the PGT moves closer toward crowning the greatest poker champion of the year and winner of the PGT Championship’s $500,000 prize, these are two events that you simply cannot miss whether you’re a high-stakes player or one of the millions of poker fans around the world.”

What to expect from PokerGO

All the final table action from both series will be streamed on PokerGO. The Poker Masters kicks off on Sept. 21 with 12 events running through Oct. 2. The action concludes with the $50,000 No Limit Hold’em finale.

The player earning the most PokerGO Tour (PGT) points during the series is crowned the 2022 Poker Masters champion. The winner earns the championship purple jacket and a $50,000 bonus.

The Super High Roller Bowl VII then picks up on Oct. 5. With a $300,000 buy-in, the tournament is the PGT’s richest event. The high roller regularly attracts some of the best players in the world with millions of dollars in prize money on the line across three days of play.

Even more action is available for high stakes players in early October as well, with Aria High Rollers continuing from Oct. 3-7.

Beyond these events, the tour also recently announced that the Stairway to Millions runs at the Venetian from Sept. 8-19. The 12-event series features $2.2 million in guaranteed prize pools. PokerGO has shifted the buy-ins to start at $460 and advance as high as $50,000. Organizers hope the lower starting buy-ins appeal to a larger player pool.

The huge run continues for Michael Addamo after taking down the $300,000 Super High Roller last week in Las Vegas for $3.2 million.

A look back at 2021 Poker Masters, SHRB

Last year’s Poker Masters saw Australia’s Michael Addamo take down the final two events of the series. That performance helped him score the champion’s purple jacket.

The first of his two wins came in a $50,000 NLHE event, winning $680,000. Addamo then won the $100,000 championship for another for $1.2 million.

“It’s been an incredible run of winning a lot of all ins – it’s just insane,” Addamo said after winning two straight titles.

Other winners in the series included Daniel Negreanu, Shannon Shorr, Stephen Chidwick, and Sean Perry. Addamo also won the top spot in the 2021 SHRB for another $3.7 million.

“It really hasn’t sunk in,” Addamo said afterward about his huge run, which also included two World Series of Poker bracelets in 2021 for more than $3 million more. “I think maybe after a week with some good sleep and rest that I’ll be like, ‘All right, that was an insane week.’”

All Poker Masters, SHRB, and Aria High Roller events qualify for PGT leaderboard points. The top 21 players are eligible to compete in the season-ending PGT Championship, a winner-take-all $500,000 freeroll. Here’s a look at the complete Poker Masters and SHRB schedule.
