To conclude, even though the journey of this tournament is short, it has managed to attain the position of one of the most prestigious and coveted tournaments of the poker landscape.

SRHB 2018:

Few basic rules of the tournament have not been changed. For instance, out of the 48 seats, 18 have been blocked for “non-professional super high rollers”, the affluent poker players, who wish to test their mettle against the world’s best poker pros and the remaining 30 seats are reserved for the celebrated poker pros of the world.

The prize pool is sure to exceed $14 million and a lot of non-professional poker players are expected to submit their participation. If the number of registrations surpass the total number of seats, the organizers would conduct a lottery to decide the final participants.

The 2018 SHRB will be broadcasted in a series of episodes on NBC Sports Network in addition to the PokerGO stream.

Fans looking to get front-row seats to the cards-up streaming action can sign up for an account at PokerGO.
