The €50,000 Super High Roller from Barcelona is running for the third time. The first time the event was held was in Season 9, and it was Dan Smith who took the inaugural title and earned €962,925. Smith defeated a field of 64 entries (54 unique entries with nine reentries) and topped a final table that included JC Alvarado, Mike Watson, Ilari Sahamies, Mike McDonald, Erik Seidel, and Talal Shakerchi.
The event returned for Season 10, but the field size dropped to 51 entries (40 unique entries with 11 reentries). Taking home the €771,300 first-place prize was Vitaly Lunkin after he defeated Seidel heads up. Steve O'Dwyer, McDonald, David Benefield, Ole Schemion, and Fabian Quoss were also at the final table.
To start this year's event, Smith and Lunkin are seated at the same table. Interestingly enough, McDonald is seated between the two, having appeared at both of their final tables.
