$250,000 Super High Roller gets down to final six, Sontheimer in the lead

One of the toughest final tables in the history formed at the Bahamas, the winner will walk away with $3,685,000!

$100 million. A pretty looking number, but why is it important? This is what the remaining 6 players of the $250,000 Super High Roller Championship have won altogether in the last few years playing the toughest live tournaments around the globe. The biggest event of Partypoker's Caribbean Poker Party generated a total of 34 entries, creating a prize pool of $7,517,500.

The winner will walk away with an astonishing $3,685,000, and the "min-cash" is $700,000. However, no players can take the $700K payday for granted to walk away with a profit, as there are only four places paid.

German wunderkind, Steffen Sontheimer will return for the final day as the chip leader, with 11,035,000 which accounts for 184 big blinds. Steffen is followed by US crusher, David Peters, who accumulated 9,310,000 or 155 blinds. Sean Winter also has a comfortable stack with 6,465,000 (108 bigs), while Mikita Badziakouski with his 3,760,000 still has plenty of room to maneuver. Isaac Haxton is on the shorter side of things, with 38 big blinds, while Nick Petrangelo will definitely need to get things going quickly because his 18 big-blind stacks can easily disappear.

As it is usual, most of the top-notch players showed up, but many of them fell short on the starting day. There were only 14 of them, who returned to Day 2, joined by three additional late registrations. However, neither of the three was able to make it to the final six. One of them was the runner-up of the $25K High Roller Steve O'Dwyer, who lost his stack when he ran into aces, holding AK, against Mikita, while the other two - Cary Katz and Ben Tollerene - also busted on Day 2.

The play will resume at 1 pm local time, with world-class play at the table!
