These days seems like you just finish one poker tournament in time to get ready for the next one. Around the globe, the biggest tournament, of course, is the World Series of Poker; in second place comes the Aussie Millions – Australia, followed by the Latin America Poker Tour – Brazil, then the World Series of Poker Circuit event in New Orleans. There are way too many for us to give you a complete list, but we will do our very best to keep you informed with plenty of time for you to gather your $$$, your senses, and of course, giving you enough time to sit at any poker table and hone your skills.

Super High Roller BowlFor now, here’s one for you to keep your eye on; perhaps you can shoot for it next year as it has already sold out for this year. In fact, hard as it is to believe, it sold out on the very first day with a buy-in of $300,000! There are a total of 50 players which created a prize pool of $15 million with $5 million going to the winner.

The 2017 Super High Roller Bowl sold out so fast that it has been confirmed as the World Championship of High Stakes Poker. 35 seats were sold out the first day and the remaining 15 seats were held back and will be chosen by the Aria Resort and Casino.

Every player wants to play in The Super High Roller Bowl. Not everyone can get in. The following are the confirmed players for the tournament:

So as always, we are beginning to feel the excitement of another thrilling World Series of Poker. And as always, there is already a lot of mumbling going on about who will be there. We know that a few of our friends will, including the Alexander brothers from McAllen, Texas. (James Alexander made it all the way to 19th place at the main event and took home $285,408 last year). We will be cheering for both Duane and James from the rails.

Pocket Bullets Paris at WSOP 2013We’re sure that a lot of the older warriors, like Phil Hellmuth, Daniel Negreanu, Phil Ivey, and maybe even one of the oldest warriors, Doyle “Texas Dolly” Brunson, will show up. Riess ‘The Beast” Ryan will most likely be there to try to make it two titles in a row. Who knows, it’s still to early to tell, but PokerNews has put out their annual “Watch Out For” list of rookies. They include some very serious newbie players that we would exercise caution with when sitting with them at the same poker tables. Here is PokerNews list of seven to watch at this year’s WSOP:

  1. Ole Schemion – 21, from Germany
  2. Dominik Panka – 22, from Poland
  3. Lukas Berglund – 21, from Sweden
  4. Jordan Westmorland – 24, from America
  5. Christoph Vogelsang – 28, from Germany
  6. Alen Bilic – 25, from Bosnia
  7. Mateusz Moolhuizen – 24, from The Netherlands

We will be keeping a close watch on these guys, and we will definitely be cheering for our friends, the Alexander brothers. We hope to see y’all there.
