We're back in the Atlantis Resort for the kick-off of the highly anticipated $25,750 High Roller this morning. After a strong turn out of 69 entries in the Single Day $50,000 High Roller tournament earlier in the week, players such as PokerStars Team Pros Daniel Negreanu and Jake Cody are just two of the names we expect to see taking part in the action.
With just 32 players remaining in the $5,300 Main Event, plenty of poker High Rollers will surely be taking each other on in this event, which takes place starting today and running until a winner is crowned on Saturday.
So many players are here in the Bahamas who have a strong record on the island, including former Super High Roller winner Steve O'Dwyer and $50,000 Single Day High Roller winner Bryn Kenney, who will surely be going for back-to-back bragging rights. $100,000 Super High Roller champion from this season's PokerStars Championship in the Bahamas Jason Koon and $25,750 PLO winner Isaac Haxton will both have the chance to go for a second High Roller here in the sun too!
Action kicks off at 11.00am local time (5.00pm CET) in the Atlantis Imperial Ballroom, with hour-long levels from the start and a 50,000 starting stack. PokerNews.com will be around the tables for shuffle up and deal and bring you live updates from the first bet to the last call.
