Sam Soverel and David Peters extend their lead at the top of the Poker Central High Roller of the Year series, after winning three events and $1.8m between them at the ARIA Fall Madness series.

Soverel & Peters lead high roller POY race after Fall Madness success.Stick the stethoscope over the heart of David Peters and Sam Soverel; you will hear the sounds of tickety-boo.

Both are trying on bikinis in the Baha Mar Resort in the Bahamas where they are playing in partypoker’s Caribbean Poker Party (CPP). Peters fell down a mineshaft on Day 2, but Soverel is still in contention for the $2m first prize with 59 players remaining.

Don’t be surprised if you see both names up in neon lights in the next fortnight, because they arrived in Nassau in scintillating form thanks to a wonderful Fall Madness.

The ARIA Poker Room put on its final fling before December’s Super High Roller Bowl (SHRB), and Peters and Soverel were the undoubted stars, winning three events and banking $1.8m between them.

Here was the lineup.

Event #1: $10,500 Pot-Limit Omaha
Event #2: $10,500 No-Limit Hold’em
Event #3: $10,500 No-Limit Hold’em Short-Deck
Event #4: $26,000 No-Limit Hold’em
Event #5: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em Short-Deck
Event #6: $52,000 No-Limit Hold’em
Event #7: $103,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Soverel dominated the Short-Deck tournaments winning both events, before finishing runner-up to Matthias Eibinger in the $52,000 buy-in event for a combined haul of $533,600.

All told, Soverel has now won eight events in 2018, with all of them coming at the ARIA, and he leads the Poker Central High Roller of the Year race with only seven games left before we experience radio silence.

Peters finished third in that $52,000 event, but we know the man from Ohio likes to put in his best performances in the more significant buy-in events, as proved by his success in the $103,000 Super High Roller. Peters beat 24-entrants, including Rick Salomon, heads-up, to bank the $1,104,000 first prize, his fifth seven-figure score of the year.

The win for Peters means only Justin Bonomo ($25.2m), Mikita Badziakouski ($13.8m) and Jason Koon ($11.5m) have won more live tournament beans in 2018, and he replaces Antonio Esfandiari as the #6 ranked all-time live tournament earner.

Soverel & Peters Command High Roller Player of the Year

Soverel and Peters extend their lead over Catz, who only managed one cash during Fall Madness. The remaining point-earning events all take place at The Bellagio during the World Poker Tour (WPT) Five Diamond World Poker Classic.

They are:

5 Dec – Pot-Limit Omaha ($10k buy-in)
6 Dec – Pot-Limit Omaha ($10k buy-in)
7 Dec – Short-Deck ($10k buy-in)
8 Dec – No-Limit Hold’em ($25k buy-in)
10 Dec – No-Limit Hold’em ($25k buy-in)
14 Dec – No-Limit Hold’em ($25k buy-in)
15 Dec – No-Limit Hold’em ($100k buy-in)

The top five players bypass the Super High Roller Bowl (SHRB) lottery, and that’s the next high roller action the ARIA will see when the $300,000 event kicks off December 17.
