Tournament Director Tony Burns and Super High Roller Champion Elio Fox

Event 14 of the 2019 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown was the $50,000 Super High Roller (Single Re-Entry). The tournament drew 20 entries and had a prize pool of $1,000,000. The top four places paid and up top was $440,000 for the winner. Outlasting the field was Elio Fox, who emerged victorious for his second SHRP trophy.

In fact, it is Fox’s second Super High Roller victory here at the Seminole Hard Rock. At the 2018 SHRPO series, Fox earned top honors for $500,000, which was also the previous Super High Roller to take place here. So in essence, Fox successfully defended his title.

“It feels great,” Fox told us afterward. “It’s always wonderful to start out a trip doing well – makes it easier the rest of the way. ”

Fox enjoys the tough competition the Super High Roller events create and the chance to prove himself against some of the best players.

“It was a really tough tournament, and I love playing with the group of guys that was here. I play with them a lot, and I’m really happy to have won.”
