Nearly $169 million in prize money has been paid out across the 16 Super High Roller Bowl events that have been held since the nosebleed-stakes tournament debuted in July of 2015. More than 30 players have cashed for multiple millions in earnings across those events, with nine having at least $5 million in SHRB scores to their name.

Justin Bonomo has separated himself from the rest of the field, however, with more than $15.3 million in earnings accrued across seven in-the-money finishes. Nearly a quarter of his $64.4 million in lifetime earnings have come from this illustrious tournament over the years. He has won three titles along the way, including going back-to-back in the SHRB China and the SHRB IV which were held a couple of months apart in spring of 2018.

Bonomo earned $4,821,516 for the first victory after topping a field of 75 entries in an event that cost $267,000 to enter given the exchange rate at the time. The second saw him best a field of 48 entries made at $300,000 a pop, resulting in a top prize of $5 million. His third win came in the lone SHRB Online event which was held back in 2020. He bested 50 entries in that $100,000 buy-in affair for a $1,775,000 payday.

Christoph Vogelsang is the only other player besides Bonomo to have accumulated eight figures in SHRB earnings. The German poker pro has made the money four times, piling up nearly $10.9 million along the way. The largest chunk of that came when he took down the SHRB III back in 2017, outlasting 56 entries in the $300,000 buy-in to take home $6 million. He also finished runner-up in the SHRB Russia in 2020, adding $2.4 million to his tally.

Recent Poker Hall of Fame inductee Brian Rast has only recorded one cash in a SHRB tournament, but it came in a huge win. He outlasted 43 entries in that inaugural running of this event, which featured a $500,000 buy-in. He was awarded the first-ever SHRB ring and $7,525,000 as the champion.

Rounding out the top five are a pair of two-time SHRB winners in the red-hot Isaac Haxton ($7,359,344) and Canadian high-stakes pro Timothy Adams ($7,053,612). ♠
