WSOP $250,000 Super High Roller Kicks Off; Addamo Surprise First Elimination

The largest buy-in event of the 2022 World Series of Poker (WSOP) was always going to attract a star-studded field. And as cards got in the air in Event #50: $250,000 Super High Roller earlier today, the assembled rail wasn't short of players to watch.

A field of almost two dozen players featured High Roller regulars, poker legends and some complete unknowns looking to come out on top in what promises to be one of the smallest bracelet fields of the summer.

Big Names and Unknowns in the Field

Phil Ivey, fresh from his runner-up finish in the $100,000 High Roller, was one of the players seated when cards were int he air and he was joined by the likes of defending champion Adrian Mateos, Alex Foxen, Chris Brewer, GGPoker Ambassador Jason Koon and Christoph Vogelsang.
