Super High Roller Bowl Tournament Won by Rainer Kemper

It may have in Las Vegas, but two Germans battled it out for supremacy at the 2nd Super High Roller Bowl event with Rainer Kempe winning and taking home a $5,000,000 payday. The original field of 49 players had dwindled to the final table. Fellow poker pros like Erik Siedel and Phil Helmuth both of whom cashed for over a million in this tournament, duked it out for top place.
In the end Kempe rained supreme. His chipstack going into the tournament was impressive with more than twice as anyone else’s and Holz was second in chipstack, positions that don’t often remain the same throughout a tournament. The final hand was Holz pair of twos that he shoved all-in with that went up against Kempe pair of eights. Holz’ 2nd place finish was good for $3,500,000.

1 Rainer Kempe $5.000.000
